Pomodoro Sauce with Chicken and Linguine

Fresh tomato “pomodoro” sauce is an Italian classic! Here it is combined with creamy Canadian cheese and chicken for the ultimate delicious meal.

  • Yields: 4 servings
  • Preparation: 30 minutes



  1. Cook linguine for 10 minutes or according to package directions; drain well. Return to pot and toss with 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter and Parmesan.
  2. Meanwhile, melt remaining butter in large non-stick skillet on medium high. Add chicken, basil and garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until chicken is lightly browned. Reduce heat to medium; add tomatoes and heat through for 2 to 3 minutes. Season to taste.
  3. Divide pasta among shallow serving bowls and spoon sauce over top. Sprinkle with Ivanhoe Mozzarella cheese.
  • Plum tomatoes are meaty and less juicy than the round variety and are a good choice. If the tomatoes are acidic, stir in sugar to taste.
  • Add a touch of green goodness: stir in a couple of handfuls of fresh baby spinach or a scoop of thawed frozen peas with the tomatoes.
