Chicken Rustica

Today's recipe is a recipe that I make when a trip to an Italian restaurant beckons me, but the budget doesn't allow.

Chicken Rustica

1 package bow tie pasta
1/4 cup olive oil
2 boneless chicken breasts, cut in bite size pieces
3 Tablespoons basil pesto
3 cloves garlic minced
1 10 oz jar sun dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1/2 cup crumbled ricotta

Cook pasta, drain and set aside. Heat 2 T oil in large skillet. Cook chicken until done, set aside. In a medium bowl, combine remaining oil and other ingredients. Mix until smooth. In the large skillet, toss pasta with sauce and chicken. Cook on low heat five minutes or until heated through.

Add garlic bread and a tossed salad....who needs the Olive Garden???
