The Slow-Fast Food.

With just a few simple ingredients we can make a delicious, healthy and affordable meal.
Today I was inspired by 3 zucchini I had in my veggie bin. They needed to go!
So, I made Spaghetti with zucchini and chicken.

The ingredients are for 2
(Two hungry people)

4 0z linguine
1 Boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced
3 Tbs.olive oil
2 Garlic cloves, chopped
2 Small chili peppers, sliced
1/2 ts seasoned salt (or to taste)
1/4 ts freshly ground black pepper
3 Zucchini, sliced
1/2 Cup Shredded cheese
1/8 Cup fresh basil, julienned

In large saucepan with boiling salted water, cook pasta al dente.
Meanwhile,heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add garlic and chili pepper and cook for 2 minutes;
add chicken, saute 5 minutes or until lightly golden.
Season with seasoned salt (I use Lawry's) and pepper.
Add zucchini to same skillet and cook for 5 minutes until squash is crisp-tender.
Drain pasta,and toss with some olive oil; place on a oven proof platter,top with chicken,zucchini and sprinkle with the cheese.
Place under the broiler for a couple of minutes until the cheese is melted and golden.
Sprinkle some fresh basil (VERY IMPORTANT) and...eat.
