Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons EVOO 
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound crimini or button mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 to 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • A few sprigs each fresh sage and thyme, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • About 1/3 cup marsala or dry sherry
  • 2 cups tomato passata or puree
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups poached chicken, in bite-size pieces
  • 1 pound rigatoni
  • Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

Directions

Heat the EVOO in a deep skillet over medium-high heat, add the butter and melt into the oil. Add the mushrooms and brown well. Add the garlic, shallots, herbs and some salt and pepper, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Then add the tomato paste, stir 1 minute more. Add the marsala, stir. Add the passata, stock and cream, and combine. Add the chicken and simmer over low heat to thicken. Adjust seasoning. Cool and store for a make-ahead meal. 

Bring a pot of water to boil for the pasta, salt the water and cook the rigatoni to al dente. Reserve a cup starchy water, then drain. Toss the pasta with the sauce and add the starchy water as needed if the mixture seems dry or tight. Serve topped with Parmigiano-Reggiano.
