VTV - bell peppers

I made this last Wednesday, and put off posting about it because I felt guilty. We ate every drop of it (and I doubled the recipe) immediately, and I didn't get any pictures! It was devoured! So, instead, this is a picture stolen from Kraft's website, since this is one of their recipes.
Quick Fettuccine Cacciatore

Prep Time:5 min
Total Time:20 min
Makes:Makes 4 servings, 2 cups each.
1/2 lb. fettuccine, uncooked (I used 1/2 whole wheat pasta - I would have just used whole wheat if I could have found more in the store.)
2 tsp. oil
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 cup each: green pepper strips and sliced fresh mushrooms
1 can (14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing
1/2 cup KRAFT Shredded Italian* Mozzarella-Parmesan Cheese Blend
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil (I only had dried, so I used that instead)
COOK pasta as directed on package.
MEANWHILE, heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat.
Add chicken; cook and stir until no longer pink.
Add peppers and mushrooms; cook 3 min., stirring occasionally.
Stir in tomatoes and dressing.
Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 min. or until chicken is cooked through.
DRAIN pasta. Toss with chicken mixture; sprinkle with cheese and basil.
