Caprese Chicken Pasta {RECIPE}

After a little clean out of my fridge yesterday, I realized I had some mozzarella balls that needed to be used. A bit of brain racking and out came this:
 I sauteed chopped chicken breast in olive oil and when it was cooked, I added in sliced cherry tomatoes just to warm through. 
 Meanwhile, I chopped mozzarella balls into quarters. 
 I found Barilla makes a new pasta that is made with veggie puree and I used the zucchini and spinach one.
Toss everything together with some parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder and basil.
Make sure you mix everything while the chicken and pasta is warm so the cheese gets a little melty. Serve with some more parmesan cheese on top. 

Here are the approximate ingredients:
(Sorry, I'm really bad at measuring and remembering what I put in)

2 chicken breast
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup mozzarella balls, quartered
1/2 box pasta, cooked
1/2 Tbsp. dried basil (or to taste)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt

I didn't have any, but I think fresh basil chopped and tossed in would be delish!
