  • Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain, and set aside.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a Dutch oven or deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan, and set aside.

  • Pour in the remaining olive oil, and add the garlic. Cook and stir until fragrant. Mix in 1 cup of white wine, 1 tablespoon of sherry vinegar, tomatoes, and cannellini beans. Stir in the chicken, and reduce heat to low. Cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.

  • Stir in the pasta, basil, arugula, and red pepper flakes. Cover, and turn off heat. Let sit until the arugula and basil have wilted, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle into serving bowls, and top with Romano cheese to serve.

Easy to make and obviously low fat. But I really didn't care too much for it. The only change I made was using Dandelion greens instead of Arugula because my market didn't have any. Seemed to make much more than 4 servings. Read More

This js a great recipe and I customized it to be VEGAN. I did make modifications simply because of what I had on hand. Firstly I had a creamy roasted red/yellow/orange peppper sauce that needed to be used. So I added a can of diced tomatoes to that along with half a yellow onion roasted garlic and garlic salt marsala wine arugula and Italian parsley and vegan rice macaroni. Whether you eat meat or not this is a great recipe that is easily adaptable to all tastes. The fresh arugula and Italian parsley really made the difference! Read More

This was delicious and will become a regular of mine. My boyfriend and I both enjoyed it. I love one pot dishes that are so satisfying. I did change a few things. Cooked pasta in boullion like a reviewer suggested substituted 1/4 cup olive oil for 1 tablespoon and remainder chicken broth (lower calorie) used spinach instead of arugula (what I had on hand) and added capers because we love them!

This actually turned out to be a pretty tasty dish. Like many of the other reviewers I tend to doctor recipes (1. because I do not always have what's called for and 2. just because I can.) The meat marinade I used was about 1/4 cup of lemon juice for a double batch (1 medium lemon juiced). My sherry was wine so I chose to use the sherry and red wine vinegar. I doubled the red pepper flakes. I used about 4 cloves of garlic because more really is better and then omitted the wine from the sauce mixture. I chose to use chicken broth and again the red wine vinegar in place of the sherry. My only bean option was small white beans and the basil was limited to some frozen cubes of basil. Fresh may have been a bit more flavorful but it worked out great. I simmered the liquids and the basil tomatoes and beans for about 10-15 minutes to cook off some of the liquid. Just for good measure I included 1/4 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp thyme and 1 tsp red pepper flakes salt and fresh ground pepper in the simmer. It did taste a bit spicy but was perfect once everything came together. I did not have arugula on hand so spinach took its place. It was a great combination very tasty a little bit of spice and overall a great weeknight meal that came together fairly quickly. Read More

We didn't like this. My husband ate 2 bowls after we doctored it up but it was still just not something we liked. The flavor he couldn't quite put his finger on that he didn't like was the white wine. Same for me only I knew what it was that I didn't like. It was bland and sour at the same time. I won't try this again as I almost never have arugula on hand but thanks for the recipe--always learning something new! Read More
