Chicken liver pasta is a lovely surprise. Little can go wrong. Just clean the chicken liver thoroughly. You may add some peeled tomatoes. Add them together with the liver. Instead of Marsala wine, you can add a fruity wine, even brandy. Not more than a shot.This dish goes well with a generous adding of grated cheese. Better add it once plated.We recommend serving this dish with Gibelè wine by Cantine Carlo Pelligrino. A pure zibbibo wine.This is a festive dish. So why not using egg pasta? Even paglia e fieno.People usually add parmesan cheese. Though a not too sharp pecorino cheese does the job even better.
