Penne Pasta with Gorgonzola and Chicken

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

If you ever wondered what $25,000 tastes like, this is it. Taste of Home's biggest grand prize winner ever. It was super easy to make and wowed all the "judges" in our family too with its tender chicken and flavorful white sauce. This is one dish that will definitely be making a reappearance on our table.

The ingredients:
1 pkg. (16-oz.) penne pasta
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup white wine (I used a white cooking wine)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 cups (8-oz.) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
6-8 fresh sage leaves, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
Grated Parmesan cheese and parsley (for garnishment)

Directions: Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, brown chicken in oil on all sides. Add garlic, cook 1 minute longer. Add wine, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan.

Add cream and broth; cook until sauce is slightly thickened and chicken is no longer pink. Stir in Gorgonzola cheese, sage, salt, and peppers;

Cook just until cheese is melted. Drain pasta; toss with sauce.

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley if desired. Makes 6-8 servings. Enjoy!

Made this not too long ago and LOVED it! Huge hit with my hubby, reheated well too! (Only used 5-oz instead of the full 8-oz of gorgonzola and still thought it had LOTS of great flavor)! :)
