Chicken Pasta

Alright, so it has been so long since I have put one up. Its hard with work and everything- shame on me. So here it is. Nothing mind blowing or anything but something I enjoy making- usually by just throwing things in a pan!

1 pound boneless/skinless chicken breast
1 Green pepper
1 small onion
1 can of sauce (your choice)
Red pepper flakes
Parmesan cheese
1 box Bowtie pasta

Alright- so start with cooking your green pepper and onion in a skillet. I like to add some salt and pepper to them- if you feel like they are going to burn add a little olive oil (but I have found that I don't need anything).

Also start cooking your bowtie pasta.

Cut up chicken into cubes-salt and pepper the chicken and add to peppers and onions.

Wait until the chicken is cooked all the way through then add the sauce. (Depending on what sauce you choose you may want to add more or less seasoning).

I like a good amount of red pepper flakes- maybe 2 tablespoons (or more if I am in a spicy mood). Then about 1 tablespoon of basil (I use the crushed not fresh but I am positive that fresh would be wonderful if you have it).
Then about 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese.
Taste and add more as your heart desires.
Mix in the cooked pasta and let simmer for a few minutes.

Good stuff :). I love this- a little spicy but yummy!
