  1. For the marinade, in a small bowl combine lemon juice, oil, garlic, rosemary, basil, and freshly ground pepper to taste. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag. Add half the marinade; seal bag, and turn to coat. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Cover remaining marinade; set aside.
  2. Preheat broiler. Coat a broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Place chicken on broiler pan. Broil 5 1/2 inches from heat source 8 to 10 minutes per side or until an instant-read thermometer registers 165°F, turning once.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta al dente according to package directions, omitting the salt. Drain and keep warm.
  4. Slice chicken. To serve, place pasta on 4 dishes. Top with chicken slices and drizzle with reserved marinade. Sprinkle with basil and Parmesan (if desired), and serve.
