This stovetop meal is sure to please the entire family.

(I make this at least 2 times a month, and change up the type of pasta I use.
Have never made it yet using the pork as they suggest tho).

How to Make Pasta with Chicken & Corn Salsa

Step-by-Step

  1. [Here is where I would start my water for pasta & get it going!
    I used a thick real Italian-type Penne Ziti Rigate by Garofalo.

    Quoting from the bag here...."La Pasta Di Gragnano presso Napoli".

    Guessing it translates to something like "Number One Pasta served in Napoli"

    It takes quite awhile to cook, so I've learned the "hard" way!..lolol]
  2. In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon canola oil over medium-high heat.
    Add onion & green pepper & stir constantly, cooking for 3 minutes.
    Add "frozen" corn & cook 3 minutes more, stirring constantly.
    Remove from skillet/keep warm.

    Add remaining canola oil to pan.
    Add cut-up chicken pieces, stirring until chicken is no longer pink & juices run "clear"; about 3-5 minutes.

    Add back in the mixture of Salsa & Vegetables.
    Heat through.

    Serve over Pasta!
  3. *Tips/Variations: Cut-up Lean Pork Loin can be used instead of chicken.
    Whole wheat pasta may also be used for added nutrional value!
