Garlic Chicken with Bow Tie Pasta

I love pasta and this was definitely a tasty one. This one was inspired from The Sister's Cafe.

1 Tb olive oil
1 lb boneless/skinless chicken breast, cut up
1 tsp salt
1 Tb olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 lb mushrooms, sliced
1/2 c green onions, sliced
2 bell peppers of your choice ( I did yellow and red)
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes (drained)
1/2 c chicken broth
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp cornstarch
1 lb bow tie pasta, cooked
1/2 c heavy whipping cream
1/3 c fresh cilantro, chopped
Parmesan cheese, grated

Cook pasta.
Cook the chicken over medium heat until done. Sprinkle with salt and remove from pan. Keep warm.
Cook garlic in oil until golden. Add mushrooms, green onions and peppers - cook 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, broth, red pepper flakes, cornstarch and salt. Heat to boiling then reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Oh and I added a little cream because everything is better with cream, I did 1/2 cup.
Combine chicken, hot mixture, pasta and cilantro. Sprinkle with fresh Parmesan to your liking and enjoy!
*Use less crushed red pepper to make it mild.

Betsy, even your dad liked it and you know that pasta is not his favorite!
