Gluten Free Fire Roasted Tomato and Parmesan Chicken Penne

I’ve been messing around with different variations of this recipe for a while now, and I think we have a pretty good take on it!

It has a good mix of tomato and cheese in the sauce with some peas thrown in for good measure. {Fun fact: I HATE peas on their own, but I love them in soups and pastas!} The kids were even a fan, which is always a win in my book.
