  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir chicken until no longer pink, 5 to 6 minutes. Season chicken with 1 teaspoon salt and pepper.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook the rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, 10 to 12 minutes; drain.
  3. Heat cream in a saucepan over medium heat; mix in butter until melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk flour into cream mixture until sauce is thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add lavender and 1 teaspoon salt to sauce and mix well. Stir mozzarella cheese into sauce until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes.
  4. Mix chicken and pasta into sauce and simmer until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.

In my opinion, two tablespoons of lavender is too much, next time I'll cut it down to one. I also had to add about 2 cups of milk to thin the sauce out a bit.

For all of the simplicity this rivals a gourmet meal. I chose to use homemade fusilli pasta and grill my chicken. To give a cleaner look I did not toss the sauce with the pasta or chicken. I wi...
