This pasta dish combines chicken, basil, and tomato in a creamy parmesan cheese sauce with perfectly cooked linguine pasta. The dish can be made all on the stovetop in less than 30 minutes with minimal ingredients! Leftovers are great too and the fresh flavors of basil and tomato really shine through.
