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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 4
    boneless chicken breasts cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes (cut while partially frozen for easy, even cutting)
  • 2 Tbsp
    olive oil
  • 1 tsp
    oregano, dried
  • 1/2 tsp
    thyme, dried
  • 1/4 tsp
    cayenne pepper

    salt
  • 1/2 tsp

    onion, quartered and sliced into 1/2 inch slices
  • 2 clove
    garlic, minced (or 1 tablespoon prepared minced garlic from the jar)
  • 1 can(s)
    artichoke hearts, 14 oz. (not pickled) chopped into somewhat large pieces (remember they will break up some during cooking)
  • 2 c
    fresh spinach (cut chiffonade style--roll a bunch of the leaves together cigar-style, and then slice through with a knife to make ribbons) or 1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained.
  • 1 jar(s)
    spicy pasta sauce (tomato based, any flavor works but spicy works best. If using a garden style sauce, increase the cayenne to taste.), 24 oz
  • 1 pkg
