Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Place pasta in the pan, cook 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Stir in the shallots, red pepper, yellow pepper and garlic. Cook 5 minutes, until tender but crisp. Remove vegetables from frying pan, and set aside.
Place the chicken in the frying pan. Season with tarragon, salt and pepper. Cook 10 minutes, or until juices run clear.
Return the vegetables to the frying pan with the chicken. Mix in the cream, Cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese. Continue cooking 5 minutes, until cheese is melted. Serve over the cooked pasta.
