While the chicken is cooking, get started on cooking the pasta.
After the chicken is fully cooked, remove it from the heat and set aside.
Then, on medium-low heat, saute 1 tbsp olive oil and garlic until lightly browned.
Once lightly browned, add the crushed red pepper and basil. Saute for 3 minutes over the medium-low heat, until the flavors have had a chance to deepen.
Drain your penne pasta, and add it to the spice mixture.
Mix it together and add the mascarpone cheese and then return the cubed chicken to the pan and mix well.
Finally, add 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese and mix together.
