This spicy chicken rigatoni recipe features tender rigatoni noodles and juicy chicken tossed in a creamy, spicy marinara sauce. Made with simple ingredients and ready in less than 30 minutes!
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and cook the pasta to al dente according to the package instructions.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the crushed red pepper flakes, shallot, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Stir to combine, and sauté until the shallot becomes translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
Add the sliced chicken to the skillet, and cook until it is no longer pink and has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pour the marinara sauce into the skillet, stir to combine, and let the mixture simmer for a few minutes. Reduce the heat to low, and add the heavy cream, stirring to combine. Allow sauce to thicken.
Stir in the cooked rigatoni pasta, tossing to combine and coat the pasta. Divide your spicy chicken rigatoni among plates, and garnish with Parmesan cheese and fresh herbs!
