Penne San Remo

When Nicki gave me this recipe and I was writing it down I thought it seemed like a ton of ingredients with a lot of steps. I am always a little leary of trying things that seem complicated but Min was here and I was secretly trying to impress her (I have to keep up on my super amazing big sis rep) so I gave it a go. Let me assure you, it does have more igredients than our usual faves, but you really just have to thrown them all in so it goes together quick and is easy peasy.

Here is what you will need:
16 oz. Penne Pasta
1 lb. Chicken Breasts
1 1/2 T. Flour
2 t. Italian Seasoning
1 t. salt
1 t. pepper
3 T. Olive Oil for chicken
3 T. Olive Oil for Sauce
1 T. butter
2 T. Fresh minced garlic
3/4 C. Marinated Artichoke hearts
1/2 C. Frozen Peas
3/4 C. Sun-dried tomatoes
3/4 C. Chicken broth
1/2 C. Whipping Cream
3/4 C. Grated Parmesan

*So first get your water boiling for your pasta
*Heat up the olive oil and butter and cook your chicken up. Then cut it into slices
*Clean your pan out and then add the other 3 T. olive oil to start the sauce
*Add the garlic, peas, and chopped artichokes. Stir for 2 minutes
*Sprinkle in the flour and stir it up real good (this is to thicken the sauce)
*Next, add the chicken broth, italian seasoning, and S&P
*Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and let simmer for 3-4 minutes
*Stir in cream and then add the parm and stir until it is all melted
*Add the tomatoes and then stir in the chicken
*Toss it all together with the pasta

Believe me, it is pure yumminess!

I have a giveaway idea. Winner gets all recipes posted delivered to their house for a month! The food that is, not the recipes written down. I want the food. Still thinking about those chocolate chip cookies...
