Ingredients

    8 oz dried Rigatoni
    16 oz boneless skinless chicken breast (thinly sliced into strips)
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 medium onion
    1 medium red bell pepper, cut into strips (fajita style)
    1 medium green pepper, cut into strips (fajita style)
    3/4 cup fat-free evaporated milk
    1 tsp Frank's Red Hot (or Tabasco)
    1/8 tsp black pepper
    3 tbsp Philly Light cream cheese
    1 tbsp butter (preferably light)

Directions

Prepare rigatoni according to direction on box (do not use oil or salt, however). Drain and set aside.
Heat a large skillet over med-high heat and add olive oil. Add onions and bell peppers to skillet and cook about 3 minutes, stir frequently.
Push the veggies to one side of the skillet and add chicken. Cook the chicken until browned and then mix in with veggies and cook for about 7 minutes.

While chicken is cooking combine milk, hot sauce, and pepper in a small mixing bowl and set aside.

Add chicken to pasta and then top with sauce mixture. Add in philly cream cheese and butter and stir on low heat until melted.

It's good topped with freshly grated parmesan.
