  • Active Time 30m
  • Total Time 30m

6 servings, 1 1/2 cups each

Radicchio is a brawlingly bitter green that becomes impossibly meek and mild when simmered. Paired with some cheese and the meat from a rotisserie chicken, it cooks up quickly into a memorable pasta dish.

ingredients

  • 1 pound whole-wheat penne
  • 1 head radicchio, torn into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 roasted chicken (2 pounds), skin discarded, meat removed from bones and shredded (4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

directions

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions.

Drain the pasta, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Place radicchio and the reserved liquid in the pot and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the pasta, 2 tablespoons Parmesan, oil, chicken, vinegar and pepper and continue cooking until the cheese starts to melt, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve the pasta garnished with walnuts and the remaining cheese.
