Cheri’s guide2: Marsala (recipe + shopping included)

Nov 12 2015

by Cheri Leavy

We finally have a chill in the air and I can make some of my favorite comfort foods from my winter fare line up.  One of my go-to dishes this time of year is Chicken Marsala Tetrazzini from Southern Living.  I like to serve it with Runway Vineyard’s Mama Missy pinot grigio named after my bestie Missy Capone.

In honor of the dish and the pantone color of the year, I share the recipe and a taste of marsala fashion and beauty.

Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until bubbly.
