Cavatelli with Chicken in a Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

There is nothing NOT right about this. Wait, did that make sense?

Ingredients

2
cups cavatelli pasta
2
tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2
chicken breasts, diced into small pieces
2
roasted red bell peppers
1
tablespoon smoked paprika
3
oz container Yoplait® Greek 100 plain yogurt
1
pinch salt and pepper to taste
1/4
cup freshly chopped parsley

Directions

  • 1 Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the cavatelli and cook until al dente, close to 18 minutes.
  • 2 In the meantime, place the two peppers in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
  • 3 Transfer peppers to a small sauce pan and bring to a low simmer. Add the smoked paprika and continue to simmer while you finish the rest of the meal.
  • 4 Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add the diced chicken, season with salt and pepper and sauté until browned on all sides and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes.
  • 5 Drain the pasta water and add the pasta to the chicken. Then add the pepper sauce and Greek yogurt. Stir to fully combine everything. Taste and season accordingly.
  • 6 Add fresh parsley and serve immediately! You can also garnish with freshly grated Parmesan if you prefer.

Step By Step  

Roasted Red Pepper Chicken Cavatelli

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

Cavatelli. What a word, right?


I don't know why, but it makes me think of a super speedy sexy Italian car. And the driver probably has a pencil line mustache, a dangling cigarette from his lips and taupe linen pants to match the sand of the Mediterranean coast he so suavely cruises at sunset with his super hot lady friend in a slinky red dress.

But it's not a car. And there's no pencil line mustache. There are no taupe linen pants. No cigarette. No slinky red dress. But that's okay because this cavatelli recipe is pasta and we get to eat it, muuuuutha.

 

Ingredients for Roasted Red Pepper Chicken Cavatelli

Okay grab your cavatelli, a couple of roasted red peppers, some plain Yoplait Greek yogurt, smoked paprika, and chicken! Bok.

 

Pureeing peppers in food processor

What you'll do is just puree those peppers in a food processor until nawwwc and smeeeewth.

 

Adding smoked paprika

Then transfer them to a small saucepan and add that smoked paprika! This is what's going to cause the dish to go into space and back again.

 

Sautéing diced chicken

Now, sauté your diced chicken in a little bit of oil, until it's all nice and browned all over and yummy.

 

Adding red pepper sauce and yogurt right into the pan

BTW, cook your pasta! Then drain the water and dump the pasta right into the pan with the chicken. Go ahead and add that gorgeous red pepper sauce and a healthy dollop of yogurt right into the pan!

 

Stirring cavatelli

Stir stir stir. Oh man I can't even sit still remembering this.

 

Adding fresh parsley

Then toss in some nice fresh parsley because it's just a swell decision.

 

Then serve it topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
