Cajun Chicken Pasta

This one is Toms favorite meal- I got this recipe from Jaime.

1 12 oz pkg. bowtie pasta
2 tbl butter
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, chopped to bite size pieces
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch of green onions
2 tbl Creole Seasoning (Find it @ super wal-mart)
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp ground red pepper (cayenne)
12 oz heavy cream
1 green bell pepper, julienne
1 red bell pepper, julienne
1/2 cup parmesan, freshly grated

Cook pasta according to package directions. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken. Brown about 6-8 minutes. Add garlic, onions, Creole seasoning, and black and red peppers. Add bell peppers. Stir. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Uncover. Stir in cream and let simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cooked pasta. Add cheese and serve immediately. Serves 6

*** Now for my variations. I have started using the rotisserie chicken from costco, it tastes so much better to me, and its much easier. You could even crock pot cook some chicken so its shredded. Also I double the bell peppers bc thats my favorite part. The best thing about this meal is, like most pasta, its better the next day!!!
