Yup, I am on a pasta spree once again. I just can’t do anything with myself. Pasta is crazy delicious, it’s almost one-pot, and it requires so little time and energy! It’s P.E.R.F.E.C.T. Moreover you can come up with hundreds of combinations, and make your pasta look different every single time. That’s exactly what I do. I rarely repeat the same recipe more than a few times. Why do so if there are so many choices?

This time I filled my kitchen with the aroma of this beautiful Chicken Spaghetti with Red Sauce, Prosciutto, bell peppers, and other goodness. I love all kinds of pasta, but spaghetti will always be my favorite one. One of the reasons may be the availability of these noodles in my childhood. We didn’t have a big variety of Italian pasta at our local shops (no fettuccine, cannelloni, or others), but you were able to find spaghetti or penne.

I loved spaghetti served with sausages. In fact, all kids in my country go crazy over this kind of food (it’s like our fast food). That’s why my mom was making them quite frequently, and that’s how I got used to spaghetti! Even today I sometimes make myself spaghetti with sausages, but only if I am super lazy. I am not a kid anymore, so I love to add some veggies and other stuff kids don’t like, like I did with this Sausage Kale Pasta.

Back to the chicken spaghetti I made today. The sauce turned out fantastic. I am a fan of red sauces, while my hubby always chooses a white one. This time, however, it was my turn to pick the pasta sauce, so I made this red beauty by mixing canned tomatoes, prosciutto, bell peppers, garlic, white wine, thyme, oregano… You should be able to smell this wonderful aroma just by reading the ingredients!

Delicious, easy, and quick to make! | yummyaddiction.comDefinitely one of the best pastas I made lately. Even my hubby, who is not a fan of tomato-based sauces, agreed that this chicken spaghetti with red sauce is way better than the one we made with a white sauce last week (it wasn’t good enough for the blog). If you are too lazy for something big and time consuming, but still want to treat yourself with a nice dinner – this chicken pasta is exactly what you need!

    Ohhh yeah, there are definitely days where a big bowl of pasta is essential and this one sounds divine! By habit we normally use red wine in pasta sauces but you’ve inspired me to try it with white wine next time. 🙂

      Laura, believe me, white wine is as good in pastas as the red one 🙂
