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)

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

    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.
