Bowtie Pasta with Chicken in Cream Sauce with Roasted Tomatoes
Recipe Source: A Cook's Quest
12 ounces bow tie pasta
2 chicken breasts grilled
2 cups heavy cream
Roasted Tomatoes (about 1/2 cup chopped)
Parmesan Cheese--the real stuff (about 2 cups grated)
Parsley for garnish if desired
Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook your pasta. While the pasta is cooking chop the chicken that has already been cooked into bite sized pieces. When the pasta is cooked to your liking drain it and reserve about 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
In the same pot that you boiled the pasta, combine the cream and Parmesan cheese. Bring the cream to a boil stirring until it starts to thicken. Don't leave this unattended, it could burn which would be no good. Add the pasta into the cream along with the chicken and parsley. Stir to coat everything evenly, if needed add a bit of the pasta water to thin out the sauce.
Total Cost: $8.86 (this can definitely be made for less when item are on sale but I didn't care this time)
