Make sure to REPIN this recipe 🙂

Can I tell you how GOOD this recipe was!!!! My whole family loved it — there were left overs – heated perfectly in the microwave for Eric ( yay for not having to put together lunch the next day)

I love how rustic this recipe looks — looks like something that everyone would sit around the kitchen table to eat with bread

I love how simple it was to make — not the easiest recipe in the world — if you have been tuned into this site for a while none of my recipes are too hard — this one is a 3 out of 10 in difficulty

There are just a lot of steps — but it is soooooo worth it 🙂

I really hope you try and make it

You can make this recipe gluten free if you use gluten free pasta – Barilla makes gluten free pasta which is GREAT ( love it ) — it costs about $1 more per box

One item that is not in the ingredient picture is the parsley — I just wanted to give it a little green color 🙂

:

Ingredients

  • 3 large garlic cloves

  • ½ cup reserved cooked pasta water
  • red pepper flakes, to taste
  • salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Dice up sundried tomatoes
  2. In a large pan - add oil and garlic and sun dried tomatoes --- I would add additional 2 tablespoons of oil if the mixture is dry since you need oil to cook the chicken
  3. While all this is cooking - cook the pasta according to the instructions on the box - remember to take about ½ Cup of the pasta water out before you drain the pasta
  4. Take out the garlic and sundried tomatoes from the pan - place in the small bowl
  5. Add chicken to the pan - season with the salt, pepper, paprika, and red pepper flakes
  6. Cook chicken - once chicken is cooked - add the tomato mixture add milk and cheese
  7. Once that is heated add pasta - heat for another 2 minutes - if the sauce is too thick add some pasta water
  8. Garnish with parsley and serve
