1. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
2. Heat pan with butter or margarine. Brown the chicken then add garlic and onion. Sauté for 2 minutes, then add mushrooms, bell peppers and olives. Stir for 5 more minutes.
3. Add DEL MONTE Italian Style Spaghetti Sauce, chicken broth or water, star anise and salt to taste. Cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add half of cheese. Allow to simmer. Set aside.
4. Mix remaining cheese with cooked DEL MONTE Spaghetti. Pour sauce over pasta. Top with remaining cheese.
Browning the chicken first ensures a nice color on the meat and a deeper, meatier flavor that goes into the sauce.
