  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm olive oil and add chicken; saute until it begins to turn golden brown. Add red bell peppers and cook until they become limp; cover and simmer.
  2. In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine milk, butter, cheese and garlic; stir constantly for about 10 minutes to avoid burning. Sauce should now have a thickened sauce-like consistency; if not, add cornstarch in 1 teaspoon increments until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  4. Once the sauce is complete, combine it with the chicken and peppers mixture; add garlic powder to taste.
  5. Pour sauce over hot pasta; serve.

There is very little flavor and the Muenster cheese does not lend itself to melting and becoming creamy.

This was better than I expected! I used already cooked chicken and shredded triple cheddar shredded cheesej and I did use a tsp of cornstarch. Would make this again!
