Melissa's notes for this recipe:
Pasta Diablo is my favorite dish from Carlos O'kelly's and since they closed down in town here I had to get in the kitchen and figure out how to make it. This is my version.

Preheat oven to 350. Cook pasta and set aside. Cook chicken, dice and set aside. In a blender puree heavy cream, sour cream, garlic powder, chicken base and peppers.
In a skillet melt butter, add onion and green pepper and cook until tender. Add minced garlic and cook for a few more minutes. Now add chicken and sauce let simmer for about 5 mins. Season with salt if needed. (you can thicken sauce with a slurry of cornstarch and water, if desired.)
Add chicken and sauce to cooked pasta, mix well. Pour into a casserole dish and top with cheese. Bake until cheese is melted, about 20 mins. Remove from oven, garnish with diced tomatoes and chives.
