    One of my best friends, Cambria, is fascinated with learning new ways of making Italian pasta dishes. This a recipe she found somewhere, and I must say, it is delicious.

      This was great! I had to modify it slightly for what was in my pantry, but nothing drastic. My diced tomatoes had onions and garlic and I used crushed tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. Oh, and had to use panko instead of regular breadcrumbs, but that's never a down side! The sauce was perfectly seasoned, and what I thought was too much olive oil added a nice almost-buttery flavor to the whole dish. Very quick and easy, definitely a keeper. Thanks so much cello!

      Fantastic, just the right amount of heat. Hubby loved the chicken and the sauce. Served it with a Caesar Salad and garlic toast. We will definitely be having this again.

      This is an excellent recipe. I put the penne on the plate and the chicken on top. DH really liked it! I think I may add some parmesan cheese to the sauce next time. Loved the kick!
