  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. Combine half-and-half and butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Boil gently, stirring, until mixture has reduced to 1 1/2 to 1 2/3 cups. Remove pan from heat; whisk in cheese, basil, oregano, chives, and parsley. Cover, and set aside.
  3. Saute chicken in a large skillet until lightly browned on both sides. Stir in green and red bell pepper, and cook until vegetables are tender, and chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
  4. In a casserole dish, combine the hot cooked pasta, chicken mixture, and sauce. Mix well, and serve immediately.

My daughter called and wanted me to make pasta for dinner. I searched the database and come up this recipe. I added a good "dose" of garlic and I sauted the chicken (I used 3 breasts) with the ...

Pretty tasty stuff...and that's saying something since I have a terrible cold and can hardly taste anything! My boyfriend in particular really liked this dish. The only downfall is the 4 pots/pa...

I'm giving this 4 stars because had I followed the recipe I know this would've tasted great. I made this uusing low fat ingredients and it was very bland. So live a little and use cream and bu...

I added some soy sauce to it.

This was very good. I used fat free half and half and added a little cornstarch. My company still had not arrived when it was done so I threw it all in a casserole dish in the oven at 300. This ...

Awesome basic recipe from which you can make changes based on personal preference. I just made this for dinner, and my husband and I literally could not stop eating it. I added onions, garlic ...
