My Favorite Pasta

I hated pasta with marinara sauce... so I created my own version (the dry version) here is how it goes... The measurements are approximations.

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast - 2 pieces ( I use a mallet to flatten them and if needed cut them into half)
Penne Pasta (I like this but I guess you can use linguine or any kind)
Olive oil
Onions -1 cut longwise
Red and Yellow Peppers - half of each
Parsley - finely chopped
Garlic - 2 cloves finely chopped
Rosemary (I used dry one out of the spice rack)
Salt, Pepper
Sun dried Tomatoes (I love these and would use in any dish if I could) cut into small pieces
Artichoke hearts (from a can) chopped up
Onions 1/2 finely diced

  • Boil pasta according to the packaging instructions. I add salt and a little olive oil to it. Drain and keep aside
  • In a pan heat some olive oil and saute onions, garlic, peppers
  • Once they are cooked add in parsley , rosemary, sundried tomatoes and artichoke
  • Either you can use the same pan or in another one add olive oil and add the chicken and cook it thouroughly. Add salt and pepper.
  • Once the chicken is cooked cut into long pieces
  • Add them to the onions, parsley etc. in the pan
  • Add the cooked pasta
  • Stir so that everything is combined. Add Salt, pepper according to your taste
