The first zucchini of the season helps elevate this simple pasta dish. Of course the feta, grilled chicken and fresh rosemary can not hurt.

Bow Tie Pasta with Zucchini and Grilled Chicken

  • 1 lb bow tie pasta
  • 2 zucchini sliced in half and chopped into 1/4″ pieces
  • 1 grilled chicken breast cubed
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary
  • 2 green onions minced
  • Olive oil
  • Feta
  • Salt/pepper

Cook pasta in boiling salted water to al dente. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water. Coat pasta in olive oil and one tablespoon rosemary. In a frying pan heat 1 tbsp olive oil and saute zucchini until bright green. Add chicken, 1 tbsp rosemary and green onions. Heat through and toss with pasta and pasta water. Crumble feta over to taste and mix well. Serve hot.

    Another perfect weeknight meal for us. Now if only I could disguise the zucchini for the kids. Perhaps shredding it for them will work.

    What I love about this dish is how quickly it comes together, and you’re quite right with the feta and rosemary, totally wonderful combination. I can see this lovely meal served either hot or cold. Your zucchini must be amazing!
