Pasta with Cream Sauce

I'm not a huge pasta person, but when I saw this recipe I just had to try it because it looked so light. I'm glad I did because this is delicious! The original recipe which came from Taste of Home is just for the pasta, but I added some baked chicken and made a meal out of it. Yum, yum!


Pasta with Cream Sauce

1 package (16 ounces) bow tie pasta

1 small red onion, chopped

3 tablespoons olive oil

4 garlic cloves, minced (I only used 3 because 4 seemed like a lot.)

3/4 cup chicken broth

1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh basil

1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano

1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper

1 cup heavy whipping cream

Cook pasta according to pasta directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.

Stir in the broth, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; cook for 8 minutes or until reduced by about half.
Stir in cream. Cook, uncovered, 8-10 minutes longer or until the sauce is reduced to 1-1/4 cups. Drain pasta; toss with sauce.

Again, the recipe was just for the pasta, but I seasoned some chicken, baked it, and put it on top. I HIGHLY recommend putting chicken with it...it was SO GOOD like this! Talk about an easy, all in one meal! Enjoy! :)
