    Directions

    1. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook angel hair pasta until it is al dente, about 5 to 8 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
    2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic and onions to saute. Add tomatoes, chicken, basil, pesto, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium, and cover skillet. Simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is hot and tomatoes are soft.
    3. Toss sauce with hot cooked angel hair pasta. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
