Smoky Chicken Pasta

This is one of those recipes where I  *finally* decided to write down the changes I made right there on the index card next to the original recipe.  Primarily, this is so that I can hand the card to DH some day and say “Make this” without having to add “but instead of vegetable oil use pancetta and add a diced onion and leave out the heavy cream, oh, and make sure the goat cheese is the kind coated with pepper.”  Also I’m writing it down here so there’s a record even if the index card gets all smeared.  Ta-da!

OMGYUM.

Like nearly all Indian recipes, the list of ingredients is long, but most of them are spices and therefore this recipe is far less intimidating than it looks. Read the rest of this entry »
