“From Rachel Ray's 30 Minute Meals. A quick version of the classic recipe.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta to desired done-ness.
  2. Rub chicken breasts or thighs with the balsamic vinegar.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Cook the chicken 5 minutes per side and remove from heat.
  4. Meanwhile, heat garlic and red pepper flakes in oil until garlic starts making noise. Add portobellos, coat with oil, then sprinkle them with salt, and cover.
  5. Check after 5 minutes. You should have a dark gravy of portobello juices at this time. If the mushrooms are not dark and soft, toss them, cover, and cook another couple of minutes.
  6. Add the tomatoes and parsley. Sauce should be a rich reddish brown.
  7. Slice chicken diagonally and add to the sauce. Heat through.
  8. Add the pasta, toss and pour onto a serving platter.
  9. Top with grated parmesan cheese.
