Angel Summer Paradise

This is a nice, light, summer vegetable pasta dish.  I've been using veggies from our own garden and I'm loving it!  This is my new favorite, so enjoy!
Ingredients:
3 or 4 oz. whole wheat angel hair pasta
balsamic vinegar
olive oil
feta cheese
parmesan cheese
salt & pepper
fresh garlic
fresh basil
zucchini
fresh roma tomatoes
chicken breast

Directions:
Salt and pepper chicken breast and grill until done.  Slice zucchini into 1/2 inch slices, salt & pepper them, and grill until fork goes easily in the middle of slice.  Cook pasta according to package directions (usually about 3 minutes in boiling water--don't overcook!).  Drain pasta and return to pot.  Add about 1 tablespoon Olive Oil & 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar, & 1 teaspoon minced garlic. Toss to coat noodles, and place back on burner (turn heat to lowest setting).  Cut up chicken, zucchini, & tomatoes into bite-size pieces, then add to pasta.  Add 1 to 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, 3 Tbs. feta cheese, 1 to 2 Tbs. chopped fresh basil.  Mix together well, add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve immediately.
Serves 1 to 2 people.
