Chicken Rigatoni

I changed up this recipe a little bit by adding gorgonzola on top at the end because I really, really wanted gorgonzola.  It doesnt add many extra calories as long as you're careful with the amount that you add.

Recipe from Diabetic Meals.
Yields 6 servings.
312 calories per serving.

1 tbsp olive oil
12 oz chicken, cubed
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, cut into strips
15 oz marinara sauce
1 box rigatoni
Black pepper, to taste

Cook pasta according to box.
Drain & set aside.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add chicken & saute until no longer pink.
Set aside.

In the same pan, saute onion & pepper for about 5 minutes.
Add chicken, marinara sauce, & pepper and let simmer for another 5 minutes.

Pour sauce over pasta & serve.

This was so damned good, especially with the cheese.  One serving was more than enough to make you feel satisfied.  Also, this recipe is really fast.  The only real pain the ass is the prep but, isnt that always the way?  Haha.
