  • Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken and garlic; cook and stir 4 to 5 min. or until chicken is done.
  • Add carrots, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes and crushed pepper; stir. Bring to boil; simmer on medium-low heat 8 to 10 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Meanwhile, cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Drain pasta; spoon onto platter. Stir about half the cheese into sauce; spoon over pasta. Top with remaining cheese.

Cooking Know-How

For optimum flavor, drain pasta well before topping with the sauce.

Preparing Perfect Pasta

Follow the package directions to ensure that enough water is used for cooking the pasta. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente (tender but still a little firm to the bite), stirring frequently. To prevent pasta from sticking, add it slowly to plenty of boiling water and stir frequently while cooking. Adding oil to the cooking water is not recommended because some sauces may not cling to pasta coated with oil.
