Tasty Tuesdays!

One of my husband’s favorite dishes: Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta with Chicken.  When we serve this meal, people think we spent all day in the kitchen because it looks and tastes so great, but really it is so simple and fast!

For how often we make this meal, I am going to give you the recipe on pure memory... so I hope I remember correctly :)

• 1 package Farfale (or bow-tie) pasta
• 1/4 cup of butter
• 2-3 cloves of garlic to taste
• 1 can cream of chicken soup (or celery or mushroom) – Cream of chicken is thicker, so 1 cup of milk should be good, with cream of celery or mushroom, you may not need as much milk
• 1 cup of milk
• 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes (we like using the jar of them from Trader Joes – sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil… but make sure you drain the olive oil)
• 2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and cut up
• 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
• salt and pepper to taste

1. While cooking the pasta according to package directions, brown the butter and garlic until garlic is slightly browned.
2. Add milk and cream soup and stir until well blended.
3. Add sun-dried tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.
4. Add pieces of chicken and cheese then stir into drained pasta and serve.
