Do you like sun dried tomatoes as much as I do? I LOVE them……those chewy, tart little pieces of joy. I have been craving them lately so I made this pasta dish that is so scrumptious. You can use any veggie that you like pretty much. My favorite is sun dried tomatoes, asparagus and mushrooms, but since the asparagus looked pretty crappy in the stores, I passed on that. So I used fresh green beans and mushrooms. Use any kind of pasta that you want, but I love those cute little bow ties. For some reason, I get a kick out of the shape of those. But then again, pasta is good in any form, if you ask me!
Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Pasta

4 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
5-6 sun dried tomatoes, sliced
Fresh asparagus or green beans, cut into 2” pieces
1/2 lb fresh mushrooms, sliced

3 tablespoons of olive oil
3 tablespoons of butter
1/2 cup milk or half and half
1/4 cup water or white wine
Salt and pepper
1/2 lb bow tie or penne pasta
Freshly grated parmesan cheese for sprinkling

Remove the chicken and set aside. Add the green beans or asparagus to the pan and stir fry till tender. Add the garlic, sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms and the chicken back to the pan.

Add your cooked pasta and stir until pasta is coated with all of that yummy goodness. Sprinkle with some grated parmesan cheese and devour.
