Recipe by StormyThoughts

I used to work at Bahama Breeze and came home one night to try and replicate their Jerk Chicken Pasta as close as possible, and this is the closest I've gotten, but it tastes JUST like it!

I once too worked at Bahama Breeze. I was a corporate trainer. They marinade their chicken breast at least 24 hours in Jerk Seasonings. Their Jerk Pasta consists of slices of Jerk Chicken breasts in a Parmesan cream sauce with a touch of LEMON juice. Add fresh asparagus, mushrooms and parsley to a bed of bowtie pasta and that's it!
