Spicy Garlic Chicken Penne with Peas – flavorful chicken breast cooked with basil and crushed red pepper in a spicy and creamy tomato Mozzarella sauce with pasta and peas. This dish is so easy to make, but tastes and looks like it’s from a fancy Italian restaurant!
First, you’ll season 1 pound of chicken breast (sliced in half horizontally, to make it thinner and quicker to cook) with salt, dry basil, crushed red pepper. Cook the chicken breast in olive oil until it’s fully cooked, then slice it into small cubes:
Start making the pasta sauce by combining garlic, basil, more crushed red pepper flakes, and tomato sauce (I used one can of Hunt’s tomato sauce) with Mozzarella cheese – Mozzarella will melt nicely and taste so good with the tomato sauce:
Then, add heavy cream:
Finally, combined cooked penne pasta, cooked peas, cooked chicken together in a homemade tomato cream sauce:
I hope you will enjoy this simple delicious pasta!
