Bowtie Festival



Johnny Carino's Bowtie Festival
Yield: 4 servings.

2 tablespoons melted butter

1 teaspoon chopped fresh garlic

1/8 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup diced cooked bacon

1/4 cup diced Roma tomatoes
1 cup sliced, cooked chicken
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 jar of Ragu Alfredo sauce 
1/8 cup Asiago cheese

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

10 oz bowtie pasta, cooked

In a heated sauté pan, combine butter, garlic, onions, bacon, tomatoes, chicken, and spice mixture.  When onions begin to turn translucent, add heavy cream and Asiago cheese.  Once cheese and cream have reduced by half, add Alfredo sauce and bowtie pasta.  Toss until well combined and remove from fire.  Allow pasta to cool for a few minutes so the cheese and sauce can thicken.
