A lovely spicy
tomatoey pasta dish with lots of kick! Pasta
and shrimp combined with chili come together as my all time favourite pasta dish! I have estimated the ingredients
as I usually just throw it all together.
1 (8 ounce) package uncooked penne pasta
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cubed
5 slices bacon
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 (26 ounce) jar spicy red pepper pasta sauce
1/2 pound medium shrimp – peeled and deveined
1 fresh red chile pepper, finely chopped
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
① Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place penne pasta in the pot, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
② Place chicken, bacon, and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook 10 minutes, until bacon is evenly brown and chicken juices run clear. Drain grease.
③ Mix pasta sauce into skillet. Continue cooking until sauce is heated through. Mix in shrimp. Cook 2 minutes, or until shrimp are opaque. Stir in chile pepper. Toss with cooked pasta and 1/2 the Parmesan cheese just before serving. Garnish with remaining Parmesan.
