Penne with Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

I've been determined not to waste food lately. Maybe it is because I just cleaned out the fridge and realized how much I had to throw away. So this meal came together from food that I needed to use up in the fridge...and it tasted pretty good too!

Penne with Chicken & Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
Source: Stef's Kitchen!

Half pound of penne
1 large chicken breast, cubed and cooked
3/4 jar roasted red peppers
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Italian seasoning
1/4 cup half-and-half (approximately)

Cook penne as directed on package. During the last minute or so of cooking time, add in the spinach until wilted. Meanwhile, prepare the roasted red pepper sauce. Using a food processor, puree the roasted red peppers, garlic, and Italian seasoning together. Warm up on the stove and once warm, stir in the half-and-half. Serve penne topped with chicken and sauce.Pin It


  1. I'm slowly liking red peppers (as I didn't care for them in the past) and I would definitely like to try this!

  2. I did something like this in a recent post - just used up what I had in my fridge! This looks great!
