Sorry it has taken about a year to actually post this recipe. It's not that I didn't want to share, I've just been busy! :)
Bow Tie Pasta with Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato and Artichoke Sauce with Grilled Chicken.
1 Box Farfalle (Bowtie) Pasta
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil/drained
1 jar (or two) if you prefer marinated artichoke hearts/drained
Salt and Pepper
1/2-3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Grilled Chicken Breast Strips
First, if you are really a cuisine guru you would want to grill your own fresh chicken breasts. However, for this recipe I find that cheating is just fine. I like to use the Hormel or Hillshire Farms brand of pre-cooked strips located in the deli meat section of the grocery store. For my family I will use 2 6 oz packages.
Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package, I like mine al dente. While it is cooking in a saute pan add the tomatoes, artichoke hearts, heavy cream over medium heat and allow to come to a simmer. The sauce should turn a slight shade of pink. I like to add the chicken to the sauce as well at this point, or if grilling your own, you could add the sliced morsels to the top or side of the pasta before serving. Drain the pasta and return to pasta pot. Cover with the parmesan cheese and then add the sauce and mix together. Serve immediately.
