Creamy, Spicy, Chicken Pasta

While on spring break, we stopped by my favorite out of town HEB store. I have talked about this before....it has everything going on inside. My Sweetie is the pickiest eater ever. Once in a while, the store will be making up something to eat, and if my sweetie likes it, I buy the ingredients and make it for him at home. Once again, HEB, had a wonderful, easy, dish.
Sometimes, HEB's spices can run a little expensive...however, each time the cost is well worth it.
HEB offered a free bottle of a spice if one purchased the Giardiniera Relish that is used in this dish, however, if you can't find this relish, any kind of your favorite salsa would work. . As you can see in the back ground, I made fresh pasta. However, store bought pasta is what the recipe calls for .
1 box of pasta, bow tie or any other favorite, cooked
2 tbs. olive oil
1 lb cooked fajita chicken slices( I used Tyson)
2 tbs Giardiniera relish( more can be added if you want is more spicy.
1 cup shredded Italian blend cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
1. Cook pasta in boiling water according to package directions. Drain.
2. Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat and heat up fajita chicken. Add relish and cream. Reduce heat to medium-low, simmer gently 5 to 7 minutes. Toss cooked pasta into sauce mixture. Sprinkle with cheese blend and enjoy!

This looks so yummy. Seeing your homeade noodles made me smile. My husband was just in Texas for a family emergency and while he was there his sister made noodles (his mom always made them too). When we go back this fall I'm going to learn how to make them. Hugs, Linda

Cheese, heavy cream and pasta... how can anyone go wrong with that! I don't like spicy foods but I sure love a good dish of pasta. This one looks so delicious, thanks for sharing!
