Chicken & Farfalle with Creamy Walnut Sauce

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chicken_farfalle_with_creamy_walnut_sauce.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 1997, EatingWell Serves Two

Gorgeous-looking and lively tasting, this dish is rich in omega-3s, thanks to a double-hit of walnuts (nuts and oil). And although it's a bit pricy, walnut oil adds a distinctive, complementary flavor. You can also use it in a vinaigrette to top an accompanying salad.

2 servings, about 2 cups each | Active Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Put a large saucepan of water on to boil. Combine walnuts, garlic, salt, pepper and cayenne in a blender; pulse until finely chopped. Blend in broth, parsley and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.
  2. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring often, until it is no longer pink in the middle, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Cook pasta for 5 minutes. Add broccoli and bell pepper, cook, stirring occasionally, until the pasta and vegetables are just tender, about 4 minutes more. Drain, return to the pot. Add the walnut sauce and chicken; toss to coat.
