Chicken Penne al Fresco

Ah, this recipe is my new found love! I ate it for dinner & then lunch the next 2 days, that's how much I LOVE it. If you like garlic & tomatoes, this is for you, too. It's a Pampered Chef recipe. They sure have some good recipes!

In a large covered microwave safe dish, microwave tomatoes & garlic in olive oil for 5 minutes. Crush. Add pasta, wine, broth, salt & pepper. Microwave 16-18 minutes. Add basil, cooked chicken and cheese
