Penne With Chicken

I made this for the first time this week and my husband loved it! He said it was probably his new favorite dish.

3/4 pound boneless chicken breast
1 1/2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 c. green onions chopped
3 garlic cloves crushed
28 oz. Italian Tomatoes with juice
12 fresh basil leaves - chopped
1/2 can olives sliced
1/2 tsp hot pepper flakes crushed
10 oz penne or other tube pasta
3 oz mozzarella cheese diced
1 Tbs fresh parsley chopped
1/2 cup fresh parmesan grated

Chop up the chicken in bite size pieces and cook in a frying pan with the oil. Add the onion and garlic until softened. Add hot pepper flakes and tomatoes and juice and olives. Cook about 30 minutes over medium heat until sauce thickens. Add basil and parsley. Combine the noodles, sauce, and cheeses. Then serve.
