DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat bbq grill to high.
  • Prepare gratinata sauce by melting 3 tbls of butter over medium/low heat. Add garlic and sweat it for about 5 minutes. Be sure the garlic doesn't brown.
  • Add the marsala wine and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients for the sauce and whisk until smooth.
  • Bring mixture to a simmer and keep it there for 10 minutes or until it's thick. Cover sauce and remove from heat.
  • Cook pasta following directions on the package (7-9 minutes in boiling water). You want the pasta tender, but not mush (al dente).
  • Strain pasta and set it aside when it's done.
  • Pound the thick end of your chicken breast a bit with a kitchen mallet to make them a uniform thickness.
  • Rub chicken with olive oil, then sprinkle on a bit of salt and pepper. Spear the shrimp on skewers (6 per skewer should work fine), then rub them with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Grill chicken for 5 to 6 minutes per side. Grill shrimp for 2 minutes per side. When chicken is done, slice each breast into strips.
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Build each dish in a large shallow baking dish. Or you can use a 9 inch glass or ceramic pie plate.
  • Load 3 cups of pasta into each baking dish. Add one quarter of the chicken, 3 shrimp, and 2 tbls of prosciutto onto each serving.
  • Spoon 3/4 of a cup of gratinata sauce on each serving and toss to coat. Combine 3 tbls of grated Parmesan cheese with 1 1/2 tsp paprika, then sprinkle about 1 tbls of this mixture over the top of each serving.
  • Bake the dishes for 10-12 minutes, or until tops begin to brown.
  • Arrange 3 pimentos on the top of each serving, then jab a sprig of rosemary into the center an serve.
