Roasted Red Pepper and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta with Chicken

My family loves creamy pasta dishes.  They’re so quick and easy to make that we can have this favorite meal on a busy week night or cooked up after church on a Sunday.

This version has roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes and chicken marinated in red wine vinegar and homemade Italian Herb Salt.  Serve it up with a salad and a loaf of crusty bread with seasoned olive oil for dipping.  Even better than going out to eat and much cheaper too!  

I usually take ingredient photos, but I can’t find one for this dish on my computer.  We must have been really busy the night I made it and I forgot to take the photo.
