This is sooooo good. My sister-in-law made it for us several years ago & it has been one of our favorites ever since. I have tweaked the original recipe a bit to suit our tastes and number of servings.
Just look at that creamy, flavorful sauce...
1 Tbs oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, diced
3 chicken breasts, cubed
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes*, chopped
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk
3/4 cup grated parmesan
salt & pepper to taste
8 oz pasta (I usually use bowties, but this time I happened to use campanelle)
2 Tbs butter
Cook & drain the pasta according to package directions. Stir in the salt & butter. Set aside.
Cook the garlic & onion in oil until translucent. Add the chicken & tomatoes and cook until the chicken is done. Stir in the cream, milk, parmesan, salt & pepper. Cook over medium heat until it is heated through.
Spoon over plates of hot pasta & sprinkle with a little chopped fresh basil. Serves 8.
*If the sundried tomatoes are packaged dry (as opposed to being packed in oil), rehydrate them by soaking them in very hot water for 10 minutes. If they're in oil, drain them well.
