  • Two 4-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 

  • 1/2 cup white onion, chopped

  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms 

  • 1 cup white beans, cooked

  • 2 tablespoons garlic, chopped

  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped

  • 12 ounces uncooked rotelle pasta 

  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese 

  • Ground black pepper, to taste



  • Spray the grill rack with a light coating of cooking spray and position the rack approximately 5 inches from the heat source. Preheat the grill to high heat.

  • Grill the chicken for approximately 5 minutes per side. Once cooked, allow the chicken to cool for 5 minutes, then slice into strips.

  • Add olive oil to a large, nonstick skillet and place over medium heat. Saut� the onions and mushrooms in the skillet for 5 minutes or until softened. Add the beans, garlic, basil, and chicken to the skillet, and reduce heat to low.

  • Cook the pasta in a large cooking pot according to the package directions. Once tender, drain the pasta and return to the cooking pot.

  • Add the ingredients in the skillet to the pasta, and toss to combine.

  • Place equal portions of the pasta onto four dinner plates. Top each portion with 1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese and black pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.
