Chicken pasta in creamy tomato sauce

Here is an easy, fast and very delicious recipe. Enjoy!


3 chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
2 Tbsp olive oil
1Tbsp red pepper flakes (use less if you don't like your food with a bite)
4 garlic cloves, minced (I used 4 cubes of the frozen garlic from Trader Joe's - it's simply fabulous!)
1 jar of marinara sauce (also from TJ)
1/3 cup cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Pasta of choice, rigatoni or penne would work the best

Cook pasta while you are preparing the sauce. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add red pepper flakes and garlic and fry it for 15 seconds so the garlic does not burn but flavors the oil. Add chicken and let it brown on the outside. Add the marinara sauce and heat it up. Add cream and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste and simmer until chicken is done. Add your cooked pasta and mix it well. Don't add too much of it as you don't want to end up with a dry dish. Also, make sure that the pasta is still hot when you add it to the sauce as it will absorb the flavor better.

Enjoy this finger-licking goodness!!
