The great thing about this recipe is that if you have any leftovers (which you probably won’t) it will be even better the next day.
16 ounce bag of Pasta- your choice (always cook at dente in salt water according to package directions)
2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 to 3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 small onion, diced
2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced
1 Yellow Bell Pepper, long thin slices
1 cup Peas
1 cup Asparagus, chopped into 1 inch pieces
1 cup grape tomatoes
Cream Sauce:
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons Flour
1 cup Heavy Cream
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1 cup Mozzarella cheese

  • Cook your pasta and let it drain. Heat 2 Tablespoons of oil in a skillet over a medium heat and cook chicken, garlic and onion, until the chicken is done.
  • Add the bell pepper and asparagus and cook until veggies are softened. Add the tomatoes at the very end.
  • When everything is cooked, combine the veggies with the chicken in a big bowl.
  • In your skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Toss in the flour and stir, cooking 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Slowly add the heavy cream and milk while stirring to prevent any clumps.
  • Sprinkle in the red pepper flakes and allow to simmer until it starts to boil.
  • Keep stirring! When your sauce begins to thicken and bubble, turn off the heat and add in the cheese. Stir it until the cheese melts.
  • Add the sauce to the pasta mixture and gently stir until everything is coated.
