We found this great recipe at AllRecipes one night when I was craving pesto.  I’m not big on spicy foods so was 1eery of the red pepper flake… but after giving it a try, I’m a fan.  Had it again two weeks later!

Ingredients:
1 (16 ounce) package penne pasta
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
crushed red pepper flakes to taste
1/3 cup oil-packed roasted red peppers, drained and cut into strips
1/2 cup pesto sauce

Directions:
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, roasted red peppers and pesto. Toss to coat evenly.
