Penne From Heaven

Submitted By Dara Singleton - Given to me by Krista Lake

(this recipe is a dish from a wonderful Italian Restaurant in Joplin MO - called Bella Pepper, Every time I go home - I make sure to go in and buy a quart of their House Salad Dressing!)

Grocery List:
2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
1 Pound of Bacon
green onions
1 pkg Cream Cheese
1 stick of real butter
1/2 cup of Parmesean
1 clove of Garlic
1 pkg Penne Pasta

1. Cut bacon into one inch slices and fry - drain and set aside
2. Saute sliced chicken in butter or a olive oil (I used 1/2 stick of real butter)
3. Boil Pasta
4. Make your Alfredo sauce towards the end - it doesn't take long - and you don't want it to sit -
Over Medium Heat & Continually Stirring, Combine
1 pkg cream cheese
1 stick of real butter
1/2 cup of parmesean
1 garlic clove minced
salt (easy on this)
add Milk until you get this to the desired consistency of Alfredo sauce you like -
Once that is done - have your noodles done @ the same time -
Toss together:
handful of green onions sliced up
and your Alfredo Sauce -

DELICIOUS - I made it this afternoon! - the kids loved it, Josh's diet seemed to overlook the calories too! This would be perfect to make for Company - it looks impressive, but it isn't hard at all!
