Directions:

-Pound chicken breast to an even thickness. 

-Drizzle olive oil over chicken breasts to lightly coat.  Sprinkle Creole seasoning liberally over both sides of the chicken. 

-Heat skillet on medium-high and add chicken.  Cook about 3 minutes on each side.

-While chicken is cooking heat up alfredo sauce and roasted garlic.  Add pasta and toss.

-Divide pasta between 4 pasta bowls.  Thinly slice chicken and place on top of pasta.  Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, if desired.
