Cook pasta; set aside.

Heat oil in skillet and cook chicken until done. Add snow peas, red pepper, and garlic; cook and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat and keep warm.

Melt butter in medium saucepan. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook until thickened. Add cream cheese, romano, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted.
