  • Large Skillet


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into thin strips
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups alfredo sauce (I just used a jar of store bought)
  • 2 cups marinara sauce (I just used a jar of store bought)
  • ½ cup cooked peas
  • 16 ounces rigatoni noodles cooked al dente
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • sprinkle of fresh parmesan for garnish
  • pinch of red pepper flake for garnish


  • In a large skillet on medium-high heat, heat two tablespoons olive oil. Saute garlic, red pepper flakes, and coarse black pepper for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in thin strips of chicken breast, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and cook until chicken is cooked through. This should only take a few minutes because the chicken is cut thin.
  • Add in marinara sauce and stir. Add in Alfredo sauce and stir. Let the sauces simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • To the sauce, add two tablespoons butter and 1/2 cup peas. Stir until the butter melts.
  • Combine the sauce mixture with cooked pasta. Garnish with fresh Parmesan cheese, and a pinch or two of red pepper flake.


  • If you want to take the spicy level down, I recommend cutting back (or completely cutting out) the red pepper flakes completely.
