Another quick dinner idea from Eating Well magazine (Feb-March 2005).

I thought this was just ok. I had to substitute chard instead of the radicchio since that's what I had. The proportions seemed to be very off - one rotisserie chicken had too much meat for 8 oz of penne, and there definitely wasn't enough chard in one bunch. Also, the balsamic vinegar made it very sweet. I don't think I'll be making this one again, though the kids seemed to like it ok.
