Pasta with Chicken, Carmelized Onion and Gorgonzola
Why I Love This Recipe
This dish is rich and impressive but really easy to make. It can be made with shrimp instead of chicken if you prefer.
Ingredients You'll Need
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
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.
