I used fresh basil, feta cheese, and cherry tomatoes. You could buy basil paste instead if you know that you won't use all of the fresh basil and would like it to save longer.

This recipe is awesome to make on a Sunday and then dish out for school lunches everyday in advance. It is so simple to make and it tastes really good. This pasta also keeps very well in the fridge for up to a full week. Pasta and chicken are so easy to pair with different flavors that the possibilities are endless!
