“Chicken livers in wine and herbs with tiny pasta. This is my favorite way to eat them.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a skillet, heat olive oil.
  4. Add onion and garlic and cook until soft.
  5. Add chicken livers in a single layer and saute until firm, about 10 minutes, turning once.
  6. Add wine and seasonings.
  7. Cover and simmer on LOW heat about 5-10 minutes, or until livers are no longer pink inside.
  8. Uncover and continue to simmer until wine is reduced by half.
  9. Toss with pasta, warm through, and serve immediately with parmesan cheese if desired.
  10. (NOTE) This recipe just evolved, and I usually do not measure, so proportions are approximate.
  11. Add more or less wine if desired, and if it seems like too much pasta, then don't add it all.
  12. I'd taste it first before you add the cheese.
  13. You might like it without.
