Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the rigatoni pasta, and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain and keep warm.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and cook in the hot oil until lightly browned on all sides, and no longer pink in the center, about 7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan, and keep warm. Stir the onion, garlic, and cubanelle peppers. Cook and stir until the onion has softened, about 4 minutes. Add the roasted red peppers, hot cherry peppers, and crushed tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, then stir in the heavy cream and cooked chicken. Simmer 2 or 3 minutes, then stir in the pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve.

Good combination of ingredients, but for our taste it needed a little more. I added half a cup of canned mushrooms and 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes. I only used a 16ounce can of red tomatoes and didn't add the red cherry pepper (didn't have any!) The biggest improvement for me was that I blended the veggies in a blender after cooking. (Just a bit!) This made it much creamier and smoother. (Plus my kids didn't pick out the chunks of veggies!) I also added a whole cup (rather than a 1/2) of heavy cream as another reviewer wrote. I also boiled the chicken in chicken broth to cook it (juicier) and then cut it up and added it to the sauce to simmer for 30 minutes. Yummo! Thanks for the recipe!
