Creamy Italian Pasta with Chicken Recipe

Creamy Italian Pasta with Chicken Recipe

I made up this recipe one night when I was very tired and had no desire to wander around a grocery store trying to figure out what to make. To make the dish even more delicious, I sometimes top it with Parmesan or mozzarella cheese. Adding red pepper flakes gives it a little more kick.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
  • 2 packages (6 ounces each) ready-to-use grilled chicken breast strips
