Penne with Spicy Chicken Alfredo

So simple, and so quick, oh and so delicious! I think I watched Sara Lee make this on t.v. a long time ago...? I have been making it a long time now, it's one of my husbands' favorites.

You will need;
1 box of penne
1 tbsp. butter
1 pd. chicken breast
1 jar of Alfredo sauce
1 can of diced tomatoes, Italian style (with basil, garlic, and oregano)
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper flakes (or more if you like it Hot Hot Hot)
1/4 cup fresh parmesan

I took a lot of pics, so be prepared for my boring step by step instructions :)
Boil some water in a pot, for the penne. Put the penne into the water.

Chop up your chicken, like so..

Melt the butter in a skillet, over med-high heat. Add your chicken, and brown the chicken.

Add the italian seasoning to the chicken. Once the chicken is browned, pour the entire can of tomatoes, juice and all, into the skillet. Then pour the Alfredo souce in as well. Stir. Add your Red Pepper flakes.

Turn your heat down to low-med, and let cook for 15-20 min.
Meanwhile, drain your pasta and toss with a little olive oil.
Once, chicken sauce is cooked though, add your penne in. Serve with fresh parmesan cheese.
