    cookiedog's Note:

    I have never had this at the restaurant but I have enjoyed it at home. The Madeira wine gives the sauce a great flavor. This recipe is adapted from my local newspaper. Edit: After reading a couple of the reviews, I decided to change the name of this recipe. formerly titled Copycat: Cheesecake Factory Pasta Da Vinci.

      I thought the flavor of this was really wonderul, loved the chicken and mushrooms witht the Madeira wine. I used 10 oz of fresh mushrooms instead of the canned. After reducing the wine, I added the cream and it sorta curdled a little bit. I would maybe let the wine cool or add a little of the wine to the cream to temper it before I added the whole cup to the skillet. While it tasted really good, the sauce had a grainy appearance. The instructions omit where to add the sour cream and so I added it after I added the cream. I've never been to a Cheesecake Factory so I don't know how this compares to the original, but overall this is something I would definatley make again. Thanks cookiedog!!!
