Healthier Pasta And Chicken Tossed With Lemon Basil Oil

Who says hearty can’t be healthy? This meal is both. Choose whole wheat pasta for more nutrition and dietary fiber boost. The simple lemon, basil, and oil dressing keeps the calories down, and the flavor intensely delicious. This is a ‘comfort food’ recipe that is still on the healthier side.
