Barbecued Chicken Pasta


Prepare pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and saute, stirring occasionally, until browned on all sides, about 3 minutes. Add bell pepper, onion and garlic and cook until pepper turns bright green, about 1 minute. Add Marinara sauce and barbecue sauce and heat just to boiling. Remove from heat.

Drain pasta, reserving 1/4 cup of water and return pasta to the pot. Add chicken mixture and cheese to the pot. Stir over low heat until pasta is coated with sauce. Add enough of reserved cooking liquid, if necessary, to make the sauce lightly coat the pasta. Transfer pasta to serving bowls and top with scallions and cilantro.

Really tasty, and easy! I didn't add the cilantro or green onions.

Additional Comments:

L2A - Absolutely delicious! This was a major hit at our house. The only thing I'd change is the amount of pasta. I'd cut the called for amount in half next time.
