Penne Rigate with Chicken, suggested by Angie

We had whole wheat penne with chicken tonight. I thought they were rotini noodles, turns out they're penne. I used a jarred alfredo sauce, and it turned out pretty dang good!

Here's the recipe (from the back of the pasta box)

Penne Rigate With Chicken

1 box Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Penne Rigate
2-3 TBS olive oil
1/2 each: yellow pepper, green bell pepper, onion and garlic clove, chopped
1 jar (26 oz) prepared pasta sauce (your favorite flavor)
3 grilled or cooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced
2 TBS chopped fresh parsley or basil

1. Cook pasta according to package directions
2. Saute peppers, onion, and garlic in oil until tender
3. Stir in pasta sauce, chicken, and parsely or basil. Simmer 2-3 minutes.
4. Serve sauce mix over pasta.

Hint: We threw the chicken breasts into a bag with olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder. Then we shook it all up, and cooked the chicken on the grill. Shake & Grill! Tasted yummy!
