I made this one day because I had these ingredients on hand. My husband took the leftovers to work the next day and heated it up in the microwave. Everyone in the office called and asked me for the recipe. Since I didn't have one, I had to write it down for them. Enjoy!

This is a delicious dinner recipe your family is going to love. The stir-fry of Italian seasoned vegetables and chicken tastes fresh and flavorful with the angel hair pasta. Freshly grated Parmesan cheese starts to melt over the pasta - kind of tastes like a softly salted sprinkle. Simply delightful! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
