Penne with Roasted Chicken & Radicchio

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/penne_with_roasted_chicken_radicchio.html

From EatingWell:  February/March 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Radicchio is a brawlingly bitter green that becomes impossibly meek and mild when simmered. Paired with some cheese and the meat from a rotisserie chicken, it cooks up quickly into a memorable pasta dish.

6 servings, 1 1/2 cups each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions.
  2. Drain the pasta, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Place radicchio and the reserved liquid in the pot and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the pasta, 2 tablespoons Parmesan, oil, chicken, vinegar and pepper and continue cooking until the cheese starts to melt, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve the pasta garnished with walnuts and the remaining cheese.
