Pesto Chicken Pasta

I talk about this recipe often enough that I just need to share it with you. It is THAT good. Please try it. For me? :) My only revision would be to add artichoke hearts, it just makes the meal~


2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon olive oil, minced
1 (16 ounce) package bow tie pasta
Curshed red pepper flakes to taste
1/3 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and cut into strips
2 boneless skinless chicken breast cut into bite size pieces
1/2 cup pesto sauce

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic until tender, then stir in chicken. Season with red pepper flakes. Cook until chicken is golden, and cooked through.
  3. In a large bowl, combine pasta, chicken, sun-dried tomatoes and pesto. Toss to coat evenly.
