How to Make It

Step 1    

In a pot of salted boiling water, cook the penne until al dente. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water.

Step 2    

Wipe out the pot; add the chicken, peppers and oil. Cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until hot, 6 minutes. Add the penne and cooking water and cook, tossing, until hot, 3 minutes. Season with salt; stir in the basil and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Pair this penne dish with a fresh, juicy, pear-scented Piedmontese white.
