Mom's Chicken and Peas Recipe

One of my favorites mom makes serve this over pasta or as stew with some crusty Italian bread!
Mom's Recipe Adapted From +claudia lamascolo  What's Cookin' Italian Style Cuisine

2 sliced bell peppers green, red or yellow
1 small can tomato paste
1 16 oz can of diced tomatoes 1 can of water
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
 cayenne pepper optional just a dash
salt, pepper to taste
1/4 cup Red or White Wine ( I like to Merlot)
a few shakes of dried oregano
lots of freshly grated cheese
1 pound of cooked ziti pasta kept warm, tossed with a few tablespoons of olive oil, salt, pepper and grating cheese


2 boneless chicken breasts cut in small chunks
2 cup peas or other suggestions below if you don't like peas

Suggestions for assorted vegetables:
 carrots, mushrooms, green beans, diced zucchini, diced eggplant


In a large dry fry pan or saucepan, saute chicken in 1/4 cup olive oil, add peppers salt pepper and cayenne pepper.


When chicken is slightly browned, add vegetables.
Add tomatoes, paste, water, wine and rest of seasonings.
 
Cook about 1/2 hour. While this is cooking, cook pasta in boiling salted water. Toss pasta in a few tablespoon of olive oil to keep from sticking as suggested above.
Place pasta on a dish and top with veggie sauce and plenty of grating cheese on top...
