READY IN: 45mins

A just wonderful Penne dish with Italian cheese and grilled chicken. Very simple but surprisingly good. This based on a recipe is from Hub Pages Restaurant food at home it is extremely well done.

This recipe was very close to the real deal! I had to improvise a bit and made my own homemade alfredo sauce with homemade heavy whipping cream. And I only had macaroni noodles instead of penne. Next time though. Thanks for the recipe!

  13. NB. I have edited this recipe from the original post. Thanks to JFitz who kindly pointed out I had omitted to include the Garlic in the Bruschetta. JFitz also added the that she cooked the meal in a casserole dish, in the oven. I have done this successfully also, but I have failed at it by using low quality shredded Italian 3 cheese mix. Always use fresh.
