    • 1 small jar (3-4 oz) sun-dried tomatoes in oil, or use 3-4 oz fat-free sun dried tomatoes
    • 1 lb chicken breast tenders
    • salt
    • paprika (just a little bit)
    • 1 cup half and half (half milk - half cream to form a lighter cream)
    • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
    • 8 oz penne pasta (for gluten free, use Tinkyada gluten free brown rice pasta)
    • 1 tablespoon basil (if using dry basil), if using fresh basil you can add more
    • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (at least, add more to taste)
    • 1/2 cup reserved cooked pasta water (or more)
    • salt, to taste
    • WHAT IS HALF AND HALF? Half and half is the US milk product that combines half milk half cream to form a lighter cream (unlike heavy cream). To make 1 cup of half and half, combine 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup regular cream (heavy, or whipping cream).
