Our Favorite Recipe!

This is our favorite recipe. I've made it for several friends and family members. Everyone always loves it. It is a knock-off of a dish we had at a restaurant that no longer exists.

Peking Peanut Penne
1 lb. Penne Pasta
4 chicken breasts grilled, cubed (I use olive oil, salt,pepper, garlic powder and lemon juice)

1 c. Creamy Peanut butter
1/3 bottle Bangkok Padang Peanut sauce
4 garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 c. heavy cream or milk
1/2 c. plus 1/2 c. shredded parmesan cheese

Cook pasta and chicken. Toss hot pasta with peanut butter, peanut sauce, garlic, milk and 1/2 c. parmesan. Use salt to taste. ***For a more creamy sauce- add more milk, for a more spicy sauce- add more peanut sauce.This recipe is not meant to be very saucy, rather more sticky in consistency***Transfer to Casserole dish and top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 until cheese is light brown. Enjoy!

Just curious here- what was the name of the restaurant and in which city was it located? I ask because I used to work at a restaurant that served the same dish, though I believe it contained chunks of celery as well.

Bought the peanut sauce and was looking for a recipe to make with it. Just made it and it was delicious! I used a long chinese noodle instead and garnished with cilantro. I will definitely make again and pass along to friends!

Jabrisco in Lincoln NE. I believe it had celery in it too. I worked there for years.

My favorite was their linguini marinara. Would you happen to have a knock-off recipe for this? A part of my world ended when Jabrisco's closed. It was my and my dad's favorite restaurant to go to together! :) Thanks so much!
