Bruschetta Chicken Pasta Recipe

In a large saucepan, saute garlic in hot oil. Add whole tomatoes. Salt and pepper to taste and saute for 10 minutes or until tomatoes start to soften.
Add salad vinegar, let reduce for a few minutes, then add in the chicken broth and chicken cubes. Simmer on low for 5 minutes.
Add in cooked pasta and toss to coat. Top with shaved Parmesan. Serve warm.
HOW MANY DOES IT FEED: 5-6
ANY CHANGES MADE: used salad vinegar instead of white, 2 chicken breasts cooked and cubed, 10 oz penne pasta
