Chicken Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes. A Delicious pasta one skillet dinner with a zingy Italian taste!

This recipe is fantastic with homemade sun dried Tomatoes and homemade Roasted Peppers. Find out how to freeze and roast peppers in this post. They are so handy to have on hand for recipes like this! The one skillet instructions are mine. And no high heat required 🙂

My Mom left to go help my sister move into a new house in Montana for a few days. Since leaving she has entrusted the care of the blogging and cooking to me!

I fancy myself more of a sweets connoisseur than a chef. I have given it my best the past couple of days. My poor spoiled father is left with noone to cook for him. So I went over to my parents house with my husband to make this pasta dish. Delicious pasta with a zingy taste

Sadly; I very nearly burnt the house down. Heed my warning when I tell you…Do not add oil to a boiling hot pan! Oh my goodness! As a rookie cook I made a silly mistake that I am sure anybody experienced in cooking would never make.

I got overly excited about cooking with sun-dried tomatoes. I went a little crazy with the olive oil. As  any self respecting newbie would I poured 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a pan that was on high heat.

Flames were shooting to the ceiling. I thought to myself “this is it, I’m going to burn my mother’s kitchen to the ground while she’s away and I’ll never forgive myself.”

Thankfully I wasn’t alone in the kitchen. While I was staring in sheer terror at the flames lapping up at the kitchen ceiling, my wonderful husband was snapping into action and taking care of the fire.

One blackened pan later, I started over. This time with the oil on low heat.

What is thy type of roasted peppers. I realize you can probably use whatever kind to your liking, but what do you use. I'm making this over the weekend and would like to know.

Hi Jeff, We use our garden peppers. Usually Tiburon variety. The closest you can find in the grocery store in my area are poblano or pasilla peppers. On the heat pepper heat scale they fall about number two. slightly hot and very flavorful but not blistering. I hope that helps!Thank you for your question. Please let us know how it turns out for you!

I've lost count of how many times I've said "don't worry! It's all under control!" as my boyfriend runs around opening windows to vent all the smoke out of the kitchen ? Despite the hot pan/oil issue this pasta sounds delicious!

Oh My Goodness! I;m sure that was a site in the kitchen. I think we've all had that happen to us. This pasta dish looks great and now you have a great story to tell along with it.
