Prep time: 10 Minutes   Cooking time: 45 Minutes   Serves: 4  


1 Lb. Bowtie Pasta
2 Chicken Breasts
Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning (Approximately 1 Tbsp. - Adjust to Taste)
1 Tbsp. Butter
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
4 Cloves Minced Garlic
Half of a Large Yellow Onion, Diced
1 28-Oz. Can Crushed Tomatoes
2 Tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (Adjust to Taste)
1/2 Tsp. Dried Oregano
1 Tsp. Dried Basil
2 Bay Leaves
1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan (More for Garnish)
Fresh Basil for Garnish (Optional)


1: In a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta according to box instructions. Once pasta is done, stir in butter and set aside.
2: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat. Season your chicken breast freely with the Tony's Original Creole Seasoning. Cook chicken for approximately 5 minutes per side (or until internal temperature reaches 165° F). Set chicken aside and remove any brown bits left in the pan.
3: In the same pan, cook the onions for approximately 3 minutes (you want them to be soft and translucent). Add the garlic and red pepper flakes, and cook for another minute. Add tomato paste, and stir to combine.
4: Add in crushed tomatoes, oregano, basil, bay leaves and Tony's Original Creole Seasoning. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
5: Taste the sauce and add additional Tony's Original Creole Seasoning as needed. Carefully remove bay leaves with a fork and discard. Reduce heat and stir in heavy cream. Add cooked pasta, sliced chicken and parmesan. Stir until everything is combined.
6: Top with fresh basil, chili flakes and parmesan. Enjoy!
