This rich, creamy pasta dish is a snap to throw together for a weeknight meal but special enough for company. You can substitute another cheese for the Gorgonzola if you like.

Ingredients

  • 1 package penne pasta (16 ounces)
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled (8 ounces)
  • 6 to 8 fresh sage leaves, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • Fresh parsley, minced
  • Cooking Directions

    Cook pasta according to package directions.

    Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, brown chicken in oil on all sides. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add wine, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan.

    Add cream and broth; cook until sauce is slightly thickened and chicken is no longer pink. Stir in the Gorgonzola cheese, sage, salt and pepper; cook just until cheese is melted.

    Drain pasta; toss with sauce. Sprinkle with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and parsley.
