Paprika Chicken with Honey Butter Brussels Sprouts

Adding Semolina flour to the pasta cooking liquid coats the pasta and gives it a smoother texture. Then adding the pasta water to the sauce gives the sauce a smoother taste. The gelatin added to the stock gives the sauce a more full bodied taste. It mimicks the homemade taste you get when simmering bones and aromatics for hours to get that gelatin released from the bones.
