Ingredients
  1. 2 cloves of garlic minced or crushed
  2. 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  3. 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  4. 1/4 yellow or red onion minced
  5. 1 tsp minced parsley (optional, it just makes it pretty)
  6. 2 tbsp tomato sauce
  7. salt and pepper to taste
  8. 1/2 a package of rice noodles ( I used and loved Peacock brand)
Instructions
  1. Soften noodles like regular pasta with salted water until they are "al dente" I boiled mine for about 5 minutes. I recommend breaking the noodles in half since they are very long.
  2. While they are softening, add minced garlic, onions and red pepper flakes to a pan and saute in the olive oil until onions are translucent. Drain and add the noodles into the pan. Stir in and continue heating through for around 2 minutes then add tomato sauce, salt and pepper to taste, and parsley. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
  1. A simple, and delicious way to curb a pasta craving! Source for rice pasta: Peacock Rice Spaghetti

Chicken Riggies

posted in: Food | 0

Chicken RiggiesSince we moved here to our new town, my daughter Amanda has been begging me to make her this local dish called chicken riggies. Apparently, it’s a big upstate NY signature dish. Originated in Utica, I believe. Anyways, I searched for a recipe and found that there were so many different variations. Some with olives, some with a creamy sauce, some without. So I decided to just make my own version combining several of the ingredients that appealed to us most from all the various recipes we’d found.  Here’s my take on chicken riggies.

 Chicken Riggies (Upstate NY style)

  • chicken
  • sweet red and yellow peppers
  • mushrooms
  • red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • can of whole tomatoes
  • olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • box of rigatoni
