I think there's two ways you could take that dish, but both ways you definitely want to add some good quality extra virgin olive oil like GB suggested. The first would be to add a cheese like feta or ricotta salata at the end before you serve it. IMO either cheese pairs better than parm with the roasted tomatoes and grilled chicken. Some finely diced red onion and cucumber would add color, texture, and freshness.

The other way would be to not add any cheese, but to add some lemon juice, capers, some type of olive like gaeta or nicoise, and red onion.

I know everyone cooks pasta in water..I fooled around with my orzo and cooked it in chicken broth, til done and the broth reduced to nothing, then added some butter and my other ingredients, like finely chlpped onions and crushed garlic,diced meat, sauteed mushrooms..It is so good cooked in chicken broth..I eat mine with just that, broth, sauteed onions and garlic,salt and pepper...
