My wife is a fantastic cook and she proved it with this dish the other

night.  She looked in the fridge and saw the pasta, the rotisserie chicken,

the pepper and wondered what she could do.  Inspiration hit and this

recipe is what came out.  The dish is delicious and easy.  I was able to take it to work for lunch a couple of times. 

 

Don’t pay so much attention to the amounts in the recipe, you can put

in anything you want but this basic method will turn out a really good

dish.
