    Confetti Chicken Pasta with Spicy Cream Sauce Recipe The Bake CakeryCONFETTI CHICKEN PASTA RECIPE Veggies & Pasta 16 oz. of Whole Wheat Penne Pasta (always cook al dente in salt water according to pkg directions) 2 tbsp. olive oil, divided 2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut in 1″ cubes ¼ tsp. salt ¼ tsp. pepper ½ c. Onion, diced 2 cloves Garlic, minced 1 Yellow Bell Pepper, long thin slices (mom uses red, yellow and orange…) 1 c. Broccoli florets 1 c. Asparagus, chopped in 1″ pieces 1 c. Grape tomatoes Cook your pasta and let it drain. (tip: I always add a bit of olive oil to my pasta water during cooking so the noodles don’t stick together). Sprinkle the chicken breast with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook chicken until done and golden on all sides. Remove and let rest in a large bowl. Add the remaining olive oil and begin sauteing the onions for 2 min. Add in the garlic and bell pepper and saute another 2 mins. Then toss in any other woody veggies (broccoli, asparagus) saving the tomatoes until the very end. When everything is cooked, combine the veggies with the chicken in your big bowl. (I’m all about reducing dishes here) Now its time for the sauce! Spicy Cream Sauce 2 tbsp. butter 2 tbsp. flour (I used whole wheat) 2 c. half & half 1/4 tsp. of red pepper flakes 1 c. Feta cheese (mom uses Parmesan) In the same pan you cooked the chicken and veggies in, melt the butter over medium heat. Toss in the flour and stir, cooking 1-2 minutes. (We are making a roux) Slowly add in the half and half while stirring to prevent any clumps from forming. Sprinkle in the red pepper flakes and allow to simmer until you see boiling action. Stir periodically. When your sauce begins to thicken and bubble, turn off the heat and add in your cheese. Stir until melty (yes that’s a technical term). To assemble everything I like to add the pasta first so it gets nice and coated with sauce and then pour the rest of the goodies in. (see photo above). This makes enough for 4 people (or two if you want lunch the next day!)

Tried this recipe on my cheat day, it was good, just had to add some extra flavor to the sauce mixture..a lil salt did the trick!

creamy avocado pasta (like an alfredo, but without all the unhealthy fats!)

    I pin almost anything with avocados. I eat them with tomatoes daily.

  • Jennie Marsland

    This looks really good. It might be one way I can get my hubby to eat avocado. I love them, but he doesn't and of course they don't keep once cut, so I end up eating a whole one which is too much.
