February 21-Tomato Basil Pasta w/Chicken

Comfort food. 

I originally found a recipe for Pesto Pasta with Chicken and decided to try it. To match the contents of my kitchen, I swapped pesto sauce and olive oil for Philadelphia Cooking Cream and basil. Since the main sauce and key seasoning was different, it was probably completely different from the original...but still turned out good. 
Tomato Basil Pasta with Chicken
3 cups whole wheat pasta
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into pieces
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup sun dried tomato pieces
crushed red pepper to taste
Approx 1/4 cup Philadelphia cooking cream 
Approx 2-3tbsp basil

1. Bring pot of lightly salted water to a bowl and cook pasta as directed. 
2. Sautee garlic, red pepper, and chicken in a skillet until chicken is cooked through. Add tomatoes at the end. 
3. Combine all ingredients, toss to coat, and heat over stovetop.
