Tips for making the best rigatoni d copycat recipe

Get a good and deep caramelization on the onions and mushrooms Don't skip the balsamic vinegar, it makes a difference Use real marsala wine (not cooking wine which is seasoned with salt). It has a sweet and fruity flavor that complements the dish. You can also use sherry, vermouth, or white wine if you do not have marsala.

– 1 lb. rigatoni pasta cooked al dente – 2 tbsp. olive oil – 16 oz mushrooms – 1 onion chopped – 3 tablespoon balsamic vinegar – 2 tsp. garlic smashed and minced – 2 cups cooked chicken – ½ cup chicken stock – 1 bottle marsala wine – 1 ½ cup heavy cream – 3 tablespoon parmesan cheese use the good stuff NOT the Kraft green can – 2 tablespoon butter – Salt and pepper to taste – 2 tbsp. fresh basil chopped

What you'll need

Substitutions and variations

– Use different pasta shape. I said earlier, I think a tubular pasta works best for this, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try it if you don't have tubular pasta like rigatoni. Use what you have! Shells or rotini would be totally fine. – Make it vegetarian. Not a meat eater? No problem, use extra mushrooms, and a variety of mushrooms, sub chicken stock for vegetable stock and you're in for a treat.
