1 red pepper, cored and diced

1 yellow pepper, cored and diced

Fresh herbs: rosemary, thyme, tarragon, basil, oregano, parsley

Cooked, diced chicken

Saute peppers and onion in oil, cooking spray, or butter until tender. Add cooked penne and mix together. Add tomatoes and cook until heated (tomatoes should still have their shape, not mushy).
