Spicy- but not too spicy! Chicken over Pasta

Top Review by Roxygirl in Colorado

Wonderful! This made a rich tasting sauce that had flavor, but wasn't too spicy for my teens. I doubled the recipe (but used about 3 tbs butter) and used diced/crushed tomatoes. After you add the wine and butter the sauce turns into a "gorgeous" dark glaze (reduction sauce) and the tomatoes and chicken finish it nicely. This was especially good with Parmesan cheese. Noe: this would be a superb marinara if you leave out the chicken, too. Post some more recipes, chef! Roxygirl
