Grilled Chicken Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

I've been doing a bunch of grilled chicken and pasta dishes lately...(i.e. here and here). Okay, so maybe 3 recipes isn't a lot, but to me, it is! I am big on changing it up. We never eat the same meal for dinner more than once in sometimes a span of months. But I have been on a grilled chicken/pasta kick! This one really surprised me with the tomato cream sauce. I expected more of a spaghetti sauce taste to it, but it was more rich and creamy. Very decadent. Loved the pairing of the sauce with the chicken - especially with the Montreal Steak Seasoning. This is a must-try recipe!!
