Easy Lemon Pasta with Chicken

I am a pasta lover! My husband is not. My cooking specialty are more on pasta. I can make any spaghetti a knocked-out. My friends always tell me that I am a good cook and I would like to expand more of my knowledge in cooking pasta not just in spaghetti and macaroni salad. Here's one pasta recipe which I got from my friend's site Hayzell's Recipe. It is easy to prepare and I am sure you will love it.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cooking Level: Easy
Cook time: 25 mins

1 pound dried penne
2 chicken cutlets, cut into fingers
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
2 lemons, juiced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan

Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, until al dente. Drain well.

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a large grill pan over medium high and add chicken. Grill until golden and completely cooked. Remove to a plate and slice.

Add the garlic and red pepper flakes to a saute pan with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and saute until fragrant. Add the cooked pasta and turn heat off. Mix all together.

Remove pasta to a large bowl. Add chicken to the warm pasta and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle in chopped parsley. Add the juice of 2 lemons and mix. Before serving top with Parmesan.
