Michael Symon's Angel Hair With Tomatoes and Garlic
1 bottle pesto
1-2 lbs chicken breasts
1 lb angel hair pasta
3 T olive oil
3 garlic cloves, sliced
28 oz canned crushed tomatoes
1 t red pepper flakes (can use as much as 1 T)
1 T unsalted butter
1/4 c flat leaf parsley, chopped
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350. Cover the chicken with pesto, then cook in the oven for around an hour, depending on the amount of chicken.
About 15 minutes before chicken is done, boil some water, salt it well and cook the pasta to al dente. While this is boiling, heat the olive oil, garlic, and a pinch of salt over low heat. Add in the tomatoes and red pepper flakes, increase the heat to medium-high, and cook for two minutes. Add the pasta to the pan, stirring the noodles into the sauce, and add some pasta water if necessary. Remove from the heat, add in the butter, parsley, and cheese, and serve with the chicken.
