Favorite Dinner Recipe: Bowtie Festival!

I had Bowtie Festival one time at Johnny Carino's and it was one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had.  I found a comparable copycat recipe online and it is delicious!

Johnny Carino's Bowtie Festival 

1 ounce melted butter

1 teaspoon chopped fresh garlic

1/8 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup diced cooked bacon

1/4 cup diced Roma tomatoes
1 cup sliced, cooked chicken
1 ounce heavy (whipping) cream1 jar of Ragu Alfredo sauce (I got the Cheesy kind)
1/8 cup Asiago cheese

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

10 oz. pre-cooked Bowtie Noodles
In a heated sauté pan, combine butter, garlic, onions, bacon, tomatoes, chicken, and spice mixture.  When onions begin to turn translucent, add heavy cream and Asiago cheese.  Once cheese and cream have reduced by half, add Alfredo sauce and bowtie pasta.  Toss until well combined and remove from fire.  Allow pasta to cool for a few minutes so the cheese and sauce can thicken.
