Backstory

This dish is rich and impressive but really easy to make. It can be made with shrimp instead of chicken if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups pasta (I usually use tubes)
  • 1 small onion Sliced
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 Cups cooked, chopped chicken breast (I usually used leftover marinated and grilled)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Garlic to taste
  • 4-6 ounces crumbled gorgonzola
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • crushed red pepper to taste

Directions

  • Cook pasta until al dente in boiling water.
  • In a frying pan heat oil. Add onions, vinegar and sugar. Sautee until soft and golden. Add garlic and tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Add chicken broth (start with one cup and leave remaining in case the sauce needs to be thickened later), chicken, garlic and cream. Cook until thickened, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Add crushed red pepper, cheese and basil. Mix with pasta and serve.
