A very close version of the Cheesecake Factory's DaVinci Pasta. DELICIOUS!
"My friends could not believe the culinary masterpiece I whipped up with this recipe! I love the Cheesecake Factory dish, and this turned out exceptionally well. I felt like such an avant garde chef and impressed everyone cooking with Madeira wine--my college buds couldn't believe it!"- drewkey

Top-ranked recipe named "DaVinci Pasta like Cheesecake Factory's"
Cook the penne pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
Over medium heat, carmelize the onion in 2 Tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle the onion with a little salt, and cook the onions until they are a nice brown color and taste sweet. The onions will have a "gooey" texture and excess liquid will be evaporated.
Add the chicken, mushrooms and garlic to the onions. Add a little more oil if necessary. Saute until chicken is cooked through and the mushrooms are soft. Remove from skillet and set aside.
Add wine to the skillet. Bring to a slow boil and reduce by 2/3 until the alcohol smell has cooked out.
Lower heat and once the mixture is no longer boiling, add the sour cream and heavy cream. Stir constantly until melted. Swirl in the butter. Add cooked chicken mixture and stir.
Toss with the cooked and drained pasta. Good served with coarsely grated parmesan cheese.

Brouse 2 months agoReally close to Cheesecake Factory's version. Loved it! (By the way, why does Maria Shedlock get to rate twice? If she hated it so much, why did she apparently cook it again 4 months later? Weird!!!)

MauraSpeckt 10 months agoThis went over extremely well with company over. We're all fans of Cheesecake Factory but who can afford to eat out all the time these days? Everyone agreed that this was almost dead on what the restaurant serves up. This will be enjoyed by us many times to come!
