My "Crunchy?" Pasta

Last week, when my parents came in town for Easter, I knew we'd be eating out a bunch. So, I made this for dinner (compliments of Meredith, of course) one night and it was a hit...all around! ... Except Matt didn't love the sun-dried tomatoes! He thought they were too crunchy!?!? Whatever! They weren't crunchy! I loved them! :)
Sun-Dried Tomato Bow Tie Chicken Pasta
4 chicken breasts
3/4 package bow tie pasta
garlic salt
1/2 onion
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes
1 can sliced black olives
1 jar of alfredo sauce (I used the Classico Sun-Dried Tomato kind!....mmmm!)
Parmesan cheese

Boil pasta as directed. Chop up onion, sun-dried tomatoes and olives and saute them in a tablespoon of olive oil until tender. Add alfredo sauce and simmer until heated through. Add sliced grilled chicken (I grilled 4 chicken breasts on the Forman) and Parmesan cheese!

I have a similar recipe but you take out the olives and instead or in addition you can use about 2 inch slices of asparagus...DELISH.

That sounds great - and adding the asparagus too - I love pasta dishes like this - I will definitely have to give this a try. Thanks!

I was on a blog stroll and thought I'd say 'Hi'! You have a lovely little place here. We share something in common. Aprons! My grandmothers were fabulous cooks...I'm a wanna be. Anyway I have a coat rack full of really cute aprons and I wear them everywhere! Not just in the kitchen. It's so confusing, but fun! I'll drop by again...nice to meet you.
