Ingredients

    • 1 package (16 ounces) penne pasta
    • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 large garlic clove, minced

    • 1/4 cup chicken broth
    • 2 cups (8 ounces) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
    • 6 to 8 fresh sage leaves, thinly sliced
    • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

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. Yield: 8 servings.
