Pasta Rags with Chicken Confit, Asparagus, and Teardrop Tomatoes

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 cups Chicken Confit, shredded
  • 1/2 pound asparagus, blanched and cut into 2-inch spears
  • 1 1/2 cups teardrop or grape tomatoes (different colors if available)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound pasta rags, cut into 2-inch pieces, cooked al dente and tossed with olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus additional for drizzling over pasta to finish
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, plus 1/4 cup, for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives, plus 2 tablespoons, for garnish


  • In a saute pan, heat the 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When the pan is hot, saute the shallots and garlic for 1 minute. Add the chicken and asparagus and continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes, stir to combine, and season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and set aside. Drop the pasta rags in the boiling water for 2 minutes. Remove and drain. Turn the pasta into a mixing bowl. Toss the pasta with the extra-virgin olive oil and 1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano. Fold in the chicken, asparagus, and tomatoes. Add 2 tablespoons chives and season with salt and pepper. Place the pasta in an over-sized shallow pasta platter. Garnish with Parmigiano Reggiano, chives and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.
