Carolyns Chicken Pappardelle

Chicken Pappardelle

1 box of bowtie pasta or broken pieces of lasagna noodles
4 strips of bacon diced
1/3 c sundried tomatoes in oil, drained and minced
3 chicken breasts grilled and sliced
1 T garlic minced
1/4 t red pepper flakes
2 cups of chicken broth
3/4 c heavy cream I sometimes use half and half
salt and pepper to taste

Cook pasta drain set aside
saute bacon till crisp,remove as much oil as possible and then add tomatoes saute 1-2 minutes add grilled chicken garlic and pepper flakes cook 1 minutes or until garlic just starts to brown.
add chicken broth, cream amd bring to a simmer . add pasta and it should thicken slightly. I like mine kinda thick so I usually add a mixture of 2 t water 2 t flour mixed together to help make it thicker.. If if you need to stretch the sauce add equal parts of cream and broth
