minutes. Add the white sauce and cook until slightly thickened.

In a large skillet, saute chicken in a little olive oil until
almost done. Add the peppers and onions, then saute until chicken
is cooked through. Add the scampi sauce. Saute until everything is
warmed. Add roasted garlic cloves. Serve over pasta. Pour a little
of the leftover white sauce over the dish.
