    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 pound ground chicken
    1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
    1/2 cup finely chopped celery
    1 tablespoon thyme leaves
    *******Pinch chili flakes *********
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 cup dry white wine
    2 cups tomato sauce
    1/2 cup tomato juice
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish 1/4 cup chopped fresh
    parsley leaves
    1 pound penne pasta


    Heat a large sauté pan over high heat.Add the olive oil and heat.When
    the oil is hot,add the ground chicken and cook until well browned,
    stirring occasionally,about 8 mins.Add the onion,
    garlic,carrots,celery,thyme,and chili flakes and cook until the
    vegetables are softened, about 5 to 8 mins.Carefully deglaze the pan
    with the white wine,scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden
    spoon.Reduce until the white wine is almost completely evaporated. Add
    the tomato sauce and juice and simmer until a thick sauce
    consistency,about 20 mins. Season, to taste,with salt and pepper.Cook
    the penne in boiling,salted water until al dente. Drain the pasta and
    set aside.Add a few tablespoons of the pasta cooking water to the
    sauce.Add the drained pasta to the sauce along with the Parmesan and
    toss well.Serve in a large bowl garnished with parsley leaves.
    ***** that you can NOT substitute chili powder. Chili flakes are little
    dried red peppers and they're much hotter than chili powder and don't
    usually have the other flavors that chili powder does.Cayenne pepper
    might work as a replacement.
