2 bay leaves

2 tsps. Olive oil

Optional: 1 – 3 teaspoons red hot pepper flakes

8 oz. egg noodles

Parmesan slivers or shavings

In a large saucepan, heat oil in bottom of pan and when hot, add onions, carrots, green pepper and bay leaves.  Stir and cover for @ 5 minutes till onions become somewhat translucent.  Add garlic if using and stir and let cook uncovered till golden.

Add chicken, oregano, flakes and paste seasoning and stir frequently till chicken is cooked through and no pink remains.  Add tomatoes, combine and cover for @ 10-15 minutes so the flavors can meld.

Meanwhile, boil a large pot of water, add noodles and cook al dente. Drain and Serve immediately.  Top with cheese.

This was an incredibly easy, delicious, just put it all together in a pot kinda meal and extremely healthy!
