Artichoke, Roast Chicken & Caper Ragu

Our pantry is always stocked with a couple key items. 

  • Artichoke hearts 
  • Calabrian chili peppers in oil
  • Salt pack capers
This recipe takes our love of pantry cooking and utilizes a little bit of leftover roasted chicken (check out our Pollo Stufato- Italian Roasted Chicken recipe here).

There is not an easier or more comforting week night meal than this one. Our favorite pastas to use with this ragu are:

Pappardelle, Tagliatelle, Fettucine, Spaghettini

Radiatori, Gigli, Strozzapretti
