"My late husband created this dish, and it was one of our family favorites. He taught me to cook it, and now it's one that my boys request all the time! I tweaked it to make it 'skinny.' It's great with shrimp or veggies also!"

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add red bell pepper, green bell pepper, and onion. Cook and stir until onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes.
  2. Season chicken with garlic powder, salt, and pepper; add to skillet. Cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove chicken from skillet and slice thinly.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain; return to pot.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic; stir until starting to brown, about 3 minutes. Whisk in flour; stir frequently to dissolve lumps and avoid burning, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; stir yogurt into flour mixture. Add broth slowly until sauce is thinned, about 3 minutes. Add Parmesan cheese and blue cheese; stir until melted.
  5. Stir peppers and onions into sauce; season with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over pasta; stir to coat. Mix in chicken.
