Spaghetti with Duck Breasts

This is a simple dish. If duck is not available, chicken may be substituted. Although the dish will not be the same, it will be delicious! The legs and thighs of the duck are not used in this recipe, but  in Ditali with Duck Legs.

 

Ingredients

1 Lg. Onion – white & chopped
1 14 oz. can Tomatoes – Italian plum
1/4 Cup Olive oil – Extra virgin
2 Duck Breasts
1/4 Cup Cream – light whipping
1/4 Tsp. Pepperoncini flakes – optional
1/2 Lb. Spaghetti pasta

Preparing the Sauce

Add 1/4 cup olive oil  and the onion to a large saute pan or flat bottomed, stove-top wok, and saute until the onion is translucent. Add the duck breasts whole and brown them over medium high heat.  Remove from the pan, let cool a bit and slice into 1/4 inch strips. Return them to the pan, and cook for 5 minutes in the garlicky olive oil.   Add the  tomatoes and the cream, lower the heat and cook for 10 minutes. Add the hot pepper flakes  at this time if using them. Season with salt and pepper to taste, cover and cook for an additional 20 minutes. Meanwhile heat the water for the pasta.

Preparing The Dish

When the pasta is very al dente, remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and add to the pan containing the duck sauce. Turn the heat to high and cook  for 2 minutes while stirring vigorously.  If the sauce has thickened too much, add a ladle full of the pasta water to the saute pan. Serve immediately topped with grated Parmesan cheese.  Try our 2007 Pinot Noir with this dish!

2007 Pinot Noir
This wine is a 14.35% alcohol, fruit forward wine, and offers a hint of oak, and a nice bit of spice. Fruit flavor such as cherries, and blackberries coupled to a great mouthfeel, and very soft tannins make this an easy to drink Pinot Noir.  It stands up to flavorful foods like veal, lamb, quail, and fowl dishes.  Almost any poultry, pork or veal pasta dish, made with or without mushrooms are great pairing partners for this wine.

In Stock

A bit more extracted than our 2006 Pinot Noir, but still a classic Pinot Noir.
