My Favorite Pasta - Rossi Pasta & a Giveaway

I love when bloggers share their favorite items. It nice to get their opinion before you purchase an item or maybe you didn't even know that it existed. 

 I wanted to share one of my favorite Pasta's that I have been buying for years.  Rossi Pasta is a gourmet pasta that is handcrafted and comes in array of flavors that cooks up fast and adds a ton of flavor to your recipes.

Besides the wonderful pastas, sauces, bread mixes and gift baskets you will find recipes on their website to go with the pasta you purchased.  

I made the Chicken Tequila Fettuccini to go with the Spinach Basil Garlic Fettuccini I had on hand.

Chicken Tequila Fettuccini
recipe from Rossi Pasta

1 package of Rossi Pasta Spinach Basil Garlic Fettuccini
1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
2 tablespoons jalapeno peppers, minced
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chicken stock
3 tablespoons tequila
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
zest from one lime
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 ¼ pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cubed
1/4 red onion, sliced
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream

1. Sauté the cilantro, garlic, and jalapeno pepper in 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes. Add the stock, tequila, and lime juice.
2. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until reduced to a pate-like consistency. Set aside.
3. Pour soy sauce over the chicken and set aside for 15 minutes. Saute the onion and the red, green, and yellow bell peppers with the remaining tablespoon of butter, stirring occasionally.
4. Meanwhile, cook fettuccini according to package directions.
5.When the peppers have wilted slightly, add the chicken and soy sauce. Toss and add the reserved tequila/lime mixture and cream. Bring to a boil.
6. Gently simmer until chicken is cooked and sauce is thick. Toss with well-drained fettuccini and garnish with cilantro and lime zest.

  3. Italian spice sounds interesting! Great look dish Pam!

  4. I'd like to try the artichoke linguine. I've never heard of that one before and it would be fun to figure out a sauce to go with it.

  5. Tomato Basil Garlic, for sure! I love the recipe that you've made here, too-it looks wonderful! ellenekitchen at gmail dot com

  6. I have been a fan of Rossi Pasta for several years. It is the best pasta! I have tried at least 10 different flavors and love them all~

  7. Spinach Basil Garlic Fettuccini!

  8. Lemon Pepper Fettuccine, OH MY!!! sunchowder @

  9. All of them look wonderful so it would be hard to choose a favorite but I would love to try the artichoke linguine because that is my favorite noodle shape and I love artichokes.

    Please don't disqualify me on the basis of my location. If I am so fortunate as to win, I would ask you to send this to one of my daughters who are at university in Providence, RI. They both adore any kind of pasta.

    Many thanks,


  10. Lemon Pepper or vino Rosso sound yummy! Santa bought me some of the Rossi pasta a few years ago. Great pasta!

  11. I think the Tomato Basil Garlic. But to be honest, I would try any of them, they all sound AMAZING!!!

  12. I think I'd want to try the Roasted Red Bell Pepper - the color would be fun to play with!

    And the Chicken Tequila recipe sounds wonderful, I'll have to try that!
