Easy recipe

When I had Jack, a friend of mine brought over a yummy pasta dish that we loved. I asked for the recipe, but she said that it was prepared the way I tend to cook- Sans Recipe.... so after an inquiry of the main ingredients, I think we might have made something similar to what they brought us and it turned out just as yummy! The best thing, was that it was so easy, and such a nice change from the normal heavy pasta sauces, so, I wanted to share:

1 box Zitti/Rigatoni (any long noodle will do)
1-2 Chicken Breasts
1 Green Pepper - sliced
1 Handful of Sun dried Tomatoes- quartered (or more if you really like them)
3-4 Tbls Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Garlic powder to taste
Mascarpone Cheese
Sour Cream
Pine Nuts (optional- but I think they are a delicious addition)

Cook noodles. Cut chicken into bite size pieces and saute in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add tomatoes and green peppers. Saute for a few more minutes. Add a large spoon full of mascarpone cheese and mix until melted into mixture. Let stand off heat while noodles cook. Drain noodles and return to pot. Add chicken mixture. Add a few more heaping spoonfuls of mascarpone cheese. I added a spoonful of sour cream. Season to taste with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Enjoy!

Mascarpone cheese can be found in the cheese section where the mozzarella in water is.
