Chicken in Creamy Tomato Sauce with Linguine

I was so excited to learn that I was selected to host a Buitoni Riserva Dinner Party from!  I decided to share this opportunity with my parents before we went on vacation last weekend.  I don't get to cook for my parents very often, so I thought it would be a nice treat.  It was a great kick-off to our trip!

I decided to check out Buitoni's website for inspiration for the dinner party.  Buitoni has a ton of great recipes on their website – all of which look amazing and are simple to make.  I don't normally cook with fresh pasta (but I will now). The only fresh pasta I have ever cooked with is the Buitoni Riserva ravioli. I didn't get very creative with it – I just boiled them and topped them with sauce, but they are wonderful! I decided that I needed to "kick it up a notch" this time and try something new.  I chose Baked Ravioli and Chicken in Creamy Tomato Sauce with Linguine.  Both of the dishes were amazing and incredibly easy to make.  Everyone was really surprised at how great everything tasted.  If you didn't know any better, you would swear we had takeout from an Italian restaurant. 

We finished the meal with a Chocolate Amaretto cake from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook (downloaded on my iPad!).  It was incredible – light and moist.  The almond and amaretto flavor shined.  I hated that we were going to vacation and couldn't eat it all weekend! 

This meal was fabulous!  I loved it!! I was kind of sad that my pictures turned out OK; I was hoping to have to make it again this weekend.  I am already looking for the next recipe to make with fresh pasta.  I can't believe I waited so long to try it!
