{Grilled Chicken with Lemon Pasta}

This pasta was great! The key is to grill the chicken if you can and make sure it is really marinated. It just adds so much extra flavor to the pasta and goes really well with the fresh lemon flavor. Delish!

1 pound dried penne
2 chicken breasts, Marinated (recipe below)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Once the chicken is all marinaded. Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, until al dente. Drain well. Put the pasta in a large bowl.
