We whipped up a quick and easy recipe using the orechiette pasta and ricotta sauce provided to us by Barilla. Check out the recipe below:  

Orechiette w Chicken, Cherry Tomatoes, Green Beans, & Basil in a Ricotta Sauce         

(Serves 2) 
1. 4 chicken breasts, diced 
2. 6 cherry tomatoes sliced in half 
3. 1 jar of Barilla Australia Ricotta Sauce 
4. 1 package of Barilla Australia Orecchiette Pasta 
5. 1 cup of green beans 
6. S&P
7. Basil leaves & shaved parm to garnish 

Cook your Orecchiette al dente and set aside. Boil your green beans until tender and set aside. In a skillet with a tsp of oil  ook your diced chicken until the juices run clear. Season with a little S&P.  Drain your skillet. Add your ricotta sauce and allow the chicken to simmer in the sauce for 10 minutes. Add the rest of your ingredients (excluding the garnish). Toss until well combined. Let it sit on low heat for 10 minutes or until warm. Sprinkle a bit of shaved parm on top,  throw in a fresh basil leaf and serve!
