Pasta with Peppers and Chicken

Imagine al dente pasta twirled around juicy, sautéed chicken breast strips and a medley of bell peppers in various hues – red, yellow, and green. The peppers bring a pop of color and a natural sweetness that beautifully complements the savory chicken, creating a harmony of tastes that is as visually appealing as it is delectable. Tossed in a light, aromatic sauce and garnished with fresh herbs, each mouthful transports you to the rustic kitchens of Italy.
