Pasta with Chicken and Pepper Cheese Sauce

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 15 mins

This creamy, spicy sauce is a nice change from the traditional, tomato based pasta sauces. Just add a nice salad, some bread, and you've got a great meal that's good enough for company and can be on the table in almost the time it takes to boil the water and cook the pasta.

I made this dish (served it over fettuccine) one evening when I had invited guests for dinner. I used the pepper jack cheese and the recipe was perfect without any changes. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. It was so tasty and easy to make that I made it again just two days later! Thank you for a "keeper" recipe! Addendum: It is now 4 years later and this is a recipe I make at least every other month! We continue to LOVE this dish and thank you again for sharing!

Very tasty and very easy to make! We served ours over vermecelli. I added a little salt at the end of the cooking time, but we love our salt. Topped with Parmesan cheese and a few sliced green onions. Very pretty! I'm not a huge fan of peppers (I like the taste from cooking with them, but ususally pick out the actual pepper) but these were very tender and tasty.
