I subscribe to FlyLady.net emails in an attempt to keep my life organized. This recipe came in one of these emails. I omitted the provolone cheese and only used half of the mozzarella cheese as we don't care for overly cheesy food. I also omit the green onions and cilantro. While we love the version I make, I'm sure the recipe is yummy with ALL the ingredients : )

Directions

  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions. Before draining, reserve 1/4 cup cooking water. After draining, return pasta to the pot and cover to keep warm.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and saute, stirring occasionally, until browned on all sides, approximately 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add bell pepper, onion and garlic and cook until pepper turns bright green, 1-3 minutes.
  4. Add spaghetti and barbecue sauces and heat just to boiling. Remove from heat.
  5. Add the chicken/sauce mixture and cheese to the drained pasta. Stir over low heat until pasta is coated with sauce. If necessary, slowly add reserved cooking water to make the sauce lightly coat the pasta.
  6. Transfer to serving bowls and top with scallions and cilantro.

Awesome! I used Jan's Spicy BBQ Sauce for the BBQ sauce and it gave it a nice little bite. I doubled the sauce because we thought that it could use more but this was a great meal. Thanks for sharing SGpratt. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
