Bow-tie Pasta Toss

This is a recipe that I just throw together…it is not at all exact. Use whatever veggies you have in whatever quantities you have.

1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup julienned carrot
1/2 cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup red bell pepper rings
1 can chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1-2 cups chopped, cooked chicken (I use rotisserie)
2 cups hot cooked farfalle (1 1/2 cups uncooked bow tie pasta)
2 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan cheese

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add onion, carrot, broccoli and pepper; sauté 3 minutes (or until tender). Add garlic; saute 1 minute. Stir in chicken, tomatoes, basil, peas, salt, and pepper; heat through. Add pasta; toss well. Sprinkle with cheese.
