Tried & True Tuesday ~ Spicy Tomato Chicken Alfredo

I was in the mood for something spicy last week and whipped up this yummy dish.
My daughter loved it so much, she asked me to make it for her birthday on Sunday!

Spicy Tomato Chicken Alfredo ~ Quick & Easy

Spicy Tomato Chicken Alfredo

1 1/2 lbs Chicken breast cut into bite size pieces
1 23 oz. jar of spaghetti Sauce - I used Traditional Prego
1 16 oz jar of Alfredo - I used light Ragu Alfredo
1 14.5 oz can of  Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies, drained 
1 teaspoon minced garlic 
1 to 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, enough to coat skillet
Just a pinch/dash of Cayenne Pepper (optional)
Fresh Basil (use as much as you like to garnish, I like a lot) 
Parmesan Cheese (optional)
Penne Pasta 

Cook pasta according to package.  Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high - add chicken and garlic.  Cook chicken until just about done.  Pour spaghetti sauce, Alfredo sauce and can of diced tomatoes and chilies over top of chicken - add cayenne pepper, stir.  Reduce heat and simmer for 15 mins.  Spoon chicken and sauce over cooked pasta, garnish with basil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Dig in!

Thanks for stopping by!
