Creamy Chicken Penne
This sounds common, but it tastes nothing like anything I've ever made and it is delicious. Left-overs from this dinner are all mine."I love this recipe, works every time. The garlic is perfect, most recipes call for 1 or 2 cloves of garlic and I always end up putting more in. I like to use most garlic in the cooking, but then mince a raw one in at the end of cooking. I also use the whole red pepper and throw in some hot chile flakes. I also like to use grated Asiago cheese, it adds a little bit more pungent taste, which is what I like. This is a 5 star recipe. Thanks for posting." - guitarmom
