Cajun Chicken Pasta

I love Italian food and I love Delallo Italian Products.  I discovered Delallo products online when we moved to Utah.  I first ordered from Delallo before Christmas when I made Delallo's Pumpkin Amaretti Tiramisu. (which is heaven)  After my local market remodeled I discovered they now carry Delallo products,  I am over joyed.  When I can not find what I want at my market I order from Delallo directly.

Here is my Delallo inspired Pasta Dish


Cajun Chicken Pasta



3 to 4 large chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
3 tablespoons cajun seasoning
3 tablespoon olive oil, divided
16 oz package your favorite Delallo Pasta (cooked according to directions on package)
3/4 cup Delallo Roasted Red & Yellow Peppers, one of each julienned
1/3 cup Delallo Sun Dried Tomatoes, julienned
1 cup Delallo Quartered Artichoke Hearts in Brine
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 cup frozen peas, do not thaw
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 large basil leaves, julienned
grated Romano Cheese

  Cook your favorite shaped Delallo pasta according to package directions, set aside.

 Heat up 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil in a hot skillet. Cut chicken breasts into bite sized pieces, sprinkle with cajun seasoning working it into the meat. Cook chicken in small batches 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until done, set aside.

In the same pan add remaining olive oil to skillet once oil is heated up add red and yellow peppers, sun dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts to the skillet and stir for 4 minutes.  Add red pepper flakes and garlic cook for 2 minutes.  Add white wine and chicken stock, heat just until bubbles start to form around edge of skillet. Add pasta, chicken, frozen peas, salt and pepper to skillet and mix together cover with lid and cook for 3 minutes.  Sprinkle with basil and romano cheese.  Serves 6

Until Next Time,
Pam
