My Uncle Dom used to make this for me all the time when I first moved out on my own and all I knew how to make were ramen noodles! This was one of the first dishes that I learned to make. It is SO delicious!

I used pre-cooked, shredded chicken breast in I started with 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil and sauteed the onion and garlic over low heat, then added canned diced tomatoes (and the lemon juice) and let this simmer for a while. I added the chicken, butter and wine toward the end, when our angel hair pasta was finished and we were ready to eat. What a great combination of flavors! (I used 3 fat garlic cloves, but I know that didn't equal 1/3 cup.) I chose to let this simmer a long time in the skillet, and it was just fabulous! This recipe would also be great without chicken. I am happy to know about this recipe because it's a winner...whether you need dinner quickly or have a little time to let it simmer. Thanks to your Uncle Dom!

I chose this recipe for Pick a Chef '06. It was very tasty. I served it over spaghetti. I split the difference and used 1/3 cup each of oil and white wine. With a salad and French bread this was a very good meal. Thanks for posting.
