This is an amazingly spicy and rich pasta dish. Rigatoni is paired with chicken and chillies in a creamy red/white sauce. You can adjust the amount of chilli to your own taste.
Good combination of ingredients, but for our taste it needed a little more. I added half a cup of canned mushrooms and 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes. I only used a 16ounce can of red tomatoes and didn't add the red cherry pepper (didn't have any!) The biggest improvement for me was that I blended the veggies in a blender after cooking. (Just a bit!) This made it much creamier and smoother. (Plus my kids didn't pick out the chunks of veggies!) I also added a whole cup (rather than a 1/2) of heavy cream as another reviewer wrote. I also boiled the chicken in chicken broth to cook it (juicier) and then cut it up and added it to the sauce to simmer for 30 minutes. Yummo! Thanks for the recipe! - 12 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I was so excited to see a chicken riggies recipe here! i'm from CNY, but now live in Northern California. This was great, I couldn't find all the ingredients so I had to make substitutions; still was delicious! - 14 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
