Servings  

Preparation

Boil water for pasta in a pasta pot, fitted with a strainer. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brown chicken strips until no longer pink -- about 3 minutes each side. Add sun-dried tomatoes and garlic to skillet. Saute for 2 minutes. In the meantime, add the fresh pasta to boiling water, cook until al dente, about 5 minutes.

Now add the basil, artichoke hearts, olives and feta cheese to the skillet. Saute 1 minute then stir in the cream. Strain the pasta and transfer to a large pasta bowl. Add the chicken saute to the pasta and toss. Season with oregano, salt and pepper before serving.

I absolutely love this recipe. I have been making it for years. Sometimes it turns out dryer than other times but all I do is add a little more heavy cream. Love, love love.

A bit dry. Considering the other reviews, maybe I did something wrong?

My family loves this recipe. 375g box of pasta. Used 2 teaspoons of dried basil and oregano. Added half red onion at same time as sundried tomatoes. Added red peppers at same time as olives etc. Used 1 cup cream to make it saucy. Staple recipe - thanks!

I use shrimp instead of chicken and skip the olives. My husband and I love it, although as others have noted, it does tend to be a little dry. Will try to remember to add more liquid next time...
