  1. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook angel hair pasta until it is al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Saute the onions and garlic. Stir in the tomatoes, chicken, basil, salt and hot pepper sauce. Reduce heat to medium, and cover skillet. Simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is hot and tomatoes are soft.

I love this recipe. I used fresh garden tomatoes, tripled the garlic, added dried oregano, and omitted salt. Because the tomato mixture doesn't really make a sauce, I added 1 cup of white win...

This was very tasty. I didn't have fresh tomatoes on hand so I added a 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes. I'm sure this is even better with fresh tomatoes. If using canned tomatoes, I think 1 tsp....

We like basil, so I put in extra -- probably around 1 1/2 cups. I'll probably use a red pepper flakes, or a sprinkle of cayenne next time. I think our hot pepper sauce has lost its kick, so thi...

Like others, I did not have all fresh tomatoes on hand so I had to subsitute some canned diced tomatoes and I think that might be the way I'd make it again. I also added a little sugar to taste.

This is amazing. Not heavy like a regular pasta sauce. I can't say I followed the measurements. Everything was eyeballed and wonderful. Didn't have enough fresh basil so added some extra dry....

I love this recipe and we have it about once a month. I think it's great the way it is. I use Roma tomatoes since I've heard they are the best for cooking. I think people that don't like this...
