Cheesecake Factory's Louisiana Chicken Pasta:
  1. In a pot, add oil. Once warm add garlic paste and saute for few seconds. To it add chopped onions, both bell peppers and mushrooms and saute for 4-6 minutes until cooked but still crisp. Add salt, chili flakes, water, heavy cream, parmesan and basil. Cook for few minutes until the sauce starts to thicken. Add pasta to this thick sauce and move it around so all the pasta is coated with sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning if need to as per your taste.
  2. Meanwhile while you are making your pasta sauce make breaded chicken cutlets as described here.
  3. Sprinkle red chili powder or paprika over the pasta and serve hot along with chicken cutlets!
