Pasta with Tomato & Basil

I love the smells of fresh herbs.. It makes you so relax and yes Happy! Why, because I finally have my own small garden that is slowly growing. Yippie!

Plus, I have missed my morning breakfast. So, I decided to cook this simple Pasta with tomato, chicken bits and yes my own plant basil. Yum.

Check out my basil :) I'm so happy because this is my first time it finally bloom and alive! Ha-ha 

Simple, delicious, relaxing morning; with grated cheddar cheese and it was perfectly divine.  

1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
Handful of fresh basil, rinsed
3 Tbsp tomato puree
1/2 cup chicken bits
4 cups of cooked penne pasta
Salt & Pepper to taste


1. Add olive oil in the pan, once it hot enough. Add in your onion and garlic. Cook it until it brings out the fragrant. 

2. Add chicken bits and tomato puree together. Give it a good mix, so it blends together.

3. Add cooked penne pasta. Cooked it through and add in salt and pepper. Lastly add the fresh basil. Gently mix it to give out the basil and tomato flavor blends together. 

4. Serve warm, grated cheddar cheese on top.
