  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the chicken breast meat for about 10 minutes, until the chicken is browned. Add the garlic, cook and stir with the chicken for about 1 minute, and pour in the cream. Mix in the sun-dried tomato pesto, roasted peppers, basil, and cayenne pepper; simmer over low heat for 30 minutes, until the sauce has thickened.
  2. While the sauce is simmering, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the penne, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well.
  3. Serve the sauce over the cooked penne.

YUM! I had to make some modifications to suite the ingrediants I had on hand. Skipped the bell pepper, a little short on the pesto so added a little more oil and cream. Doubled the garlic (we...

I had some ingredients to use and was looking for something a little different but not too involved. This was delicious and one of the few pasta dishes I've made that I felt the pasta/sauce rati...
