Chicken (or Shrimp) with Roasted Red Pepper Cream

(Doesn't it look so good with my new camera?!?)

Easy and delicious! Bill isn't a fan of shrimp so I whipped this up with chicken instead.

1 package of vermicelli pasta
1 (12oz) jar of roasted red bell peppers, drained
1 (8oz) package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 tsp ground red pepper
2lb peeled cooked large shrimp
OR 1.5 lbs chicken breast tenderloins, cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

1. Prepare your pasta according to the package directions. Set aside and keep warm.
2. In a blender or food processor, blend red peppers, cream cheese, chicken broth, garlic and ground red pepper until smooth.
3. To prepare with shrimp: Add sauce to skillet. Cook over medium heat , stirring often, 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally 2-3 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink.  Remove from heat, serve over hot cooked pasta. Sprinkle with basil.
4. To prepare with chicken: Add sauce to a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring often, 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated, . In a skillet, heat 1-2 tablespoons oils over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink. Add chicken to saucepan, cook, stirring occasionally 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat, serve over hot cooked pasta. Sprinkle with basil.
