Spicy Chicken Linguine

Recipe by Hey Jude

I like this spicy so I usually add more red pepper, if you don't like spicy stuff, replace the red pepper with black pepper, or leave it out (but it won't be as good). This is another great recipe from the Chicago Tribune Good Eating section.

I used all the ingredients in the recipe with the addition of using 1/2 parmesan and 1/2 romano cheese. I did cut up the chicken to bite sized pieces and I used spinach out of my garden instead of frozen. This got thumbs up from everyone, I note we did all take bites of this and another bite of cantaloupe to cool the mouth down. It was creamy, cheesy and spicy. We loved it! I think next time I will halve the amount of red pepper so we can eat it on its own. Thanks for the excellent recipe!
