    BakinBaby's Note:

    Chicken, Penne,Pesto & Sundried tomatoes... oh yes. This gem comes from my Best of Arizona Cookbook contributed by the 5 star Armadillo Grill. The cayenne pepper brings a little zing, if you want more hot... add more.

      I am rating this on flavour. It was very good and had alot of different flavours going on. But I found the directions a bit confusing. The diretions state add seasonings and none is listed I assume it meant salt and pepper. Plus is the parm and basil to be added to the sauce or only as garnish. I added some of the parm to the sauce and some on top. I followed this recipe for amounts exactly but we found there was alot of sauce for the amount of pasta ( I let the wine reduce for well over 10 minutes) plus we found it very thin ( I used light cream 5% fat which might explain that a bit) We had to use bowls and not plates. I did cook my chicken and red peppers a bit different . I grilled them on the barbque and roasted the red pepper whole. I also diced the sundried tomatoes. All in all a very tasty meal but one I will adjust next time. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag

      well with a few amount adjustments this turned out very well, I love adding in sun-dried tomatoes to recipes, I use chili flakes in place of the cayenne pepper, I found the sauce to be a little thin next time I may use whipping cream, thanks for sharing Bakin B!

      Extremely good, rich in colour and in flavour, this was easy to prepare and truly outstanding to enjoy. I'm only sorry my photo doesn't do justice to an excellent pasta dish that I will prepare again, often. Thanks for sharing!
