The Easiest Pasta Ever...Seriously

Those nights when you want a great meal really fast are practically made for this dish.

Tuscan Chicken and Angel Hair

Serves 4 hungry people

3 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
Sea Salt
fresh ground black pepper
3 Tbs olive oil
4 Tbs olive spread, a combination of many olives that have been minced fine and jarred. I found mine at a mega-mart, so I imagine you can too. Keeps forever in the fridge b/c it's brined.
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 box of angel hair pasta
fresh italian parsley (flat leaf), chopped
freshly grated parmesan cheese

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the chicken. Saute the chicken on medium heat. When there is some good color on both sides and the chicken is done inside remove it from the pan. Meanwhile, boil a pot of water and cook pasta according to package directions. Lower the heat on the pan used for the chicken and add the garlic and olive paste. Keep this moving in the pan so it doesn't burn. After about 1 minute, add the drained pasta and the parsley. Toss it all together and add more olive oil if it seems a little dry. Cut up the chicken into bite size pieces. Plate the angel hair and add the chicken and cheese. Enjoy!
