Penne with Roasted Chicken & Radicchio

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

Your rating: None Average: 3.4 (32 votes)

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.

Ok Recipe with Great Potential

This recipe sounded pretty tasty when I read it but after reading it I thought it still could use more of an "accent"to compliment all the flavors. So, off the bat I decided to sprinkle fresh Italian Parsley on top right before I served. And that improved the taste.

Next time I make this however, I am going to experiment with adding a little more olive oil, a small amount of garlic, and fresh celery to add some crunch.

PS: I halved the recipe, since I was only cooking for three and I omitted the walnuts.

Terrible. This was not a good dish, I can't recommend any changes that could salvage it. Would give it zero stars if I could.

Dry and unpalatable- Developed by someone who must have been cleaning out the refrigerator and this is what they came up with. Star rating on this site does not allow for zero stars but that is what this recipe deserves. Seriously....yuck.

The blurb touts this is a "memorable pasta dish." it is memorable, but not in a good way. The wilted radicchio turned an unpalatable brown color and the whole concoction was inedible. I would not recommend this recipe.
