I made this one night when I had not much in the house. The ingredients came together for a fabulous meal. Try it with shrimp or other seafood.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a simple pasta dinner that's delicious and flavorful. In Italian, arrabbiata means angry. In this recipe, it refers to the spice of the dish. And a punch of spice it has! All the veggies soak up the wonderful spice flavor. The chicken cooks down to be a tender, thick sauce. This Italian recipe is a nice change from your plain sauce.

Note: We found our sauce a tad thick. We added a little bit of water to thin out the sauce and it was perfect. The Test Kitchen

cayenne pepper

artichoke hearts, 14 oz. (not pickled) chopped into somewhat large pieces (remember they will break up some during cooking)
