Chicken with Gemilli Pasta for the Whole Family

I was looking through my recipe box, and came across this recipe. This is one of the many recipes I received at my bridal shower. This one is from my mother-in-law's cousin Amy. I couldn't find gemilli pasta, so I used tri-color vegetable fusilli. It's delicious, healthy, and good for the whole family! You can puree this for babies 9+ months, or serve cut up into to bite size pieces for little one's eating finger food.

Here's what you need:
1 lb chicken breast, chopped
1 lb gemilli pasta (or any other spiral pasta)
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
Juice from 2 lemons
Garlic clove minced
Handful fresh basil
1 can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, oregano
Handful grated Parmesan cheese

Cook chicken in a little olive oil. 7 minutes on each side. Add lemon juice, garlic, red pepper flakes, basil, capers and tomatoes. Simmer for about 10 minutes. While chicken is simmering cook pasta. Drain and add pasta to chicken mixture. Add Parmesan cheese and toss to coat. Serve and enjoy!
