How to make it
- 1. In a large skillet or non-stick pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium high heat and brown the chicken pieces on all sides. Cook until slightly browned and any pink spots are removed.
- 2. Meanwhile, cut the vegetables into desired pieces or use a grater for smaller sizes. Lower the heat and add the basil, onions, carrots, mushrooms, garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until the veggies are softened, about 10 minutes.
- 3.Stir in the bay leaves, tomato sauce, tomato paste, Marsala, white wine, and herbs. Semi-cover with lid and cook on low with a slight bubble for about 30 minutes to infuse all ingredients. Sample the sauce and add salt and pepper according to taste. Discard bay leaves before combining with chicken pieces.
- 4. Cook the rigatoni according to package directions, but don't forget to add salt to the boiling water. In addition, do not rinse under cold water; drain in colander hot and set aside.
- 5. After rigatoni pasta and sauce are finished, combine the two and plate. Grate plenty of fresh parmesan cheese and garnish with extra basil leaves. Enjoy!
