A Reliable Italian White is Good with Jamie’s Chicken Tetrazzini

Our son Andrew and daughter-in-law Steph came for a meal this evening.  One of Andrew’s old favourites is Chicken Tetrazzini (Pasta with Chicken in a Creamy Mushroom Sauce) from the Nice and Easy Cookbook (CLB). However, we fancied trying the Spaghetti Tetrazzini recipe from Jamie’s Italian.  After the last few food and wine experiences, we were hoping for something better and Jamie’s recipe was excellent.  It had porcini mushrooms as well as common ones and was more subtle than the Nice and Easy recipe.

We paired the pasta with a reliable Sicilian white – Il Papavero 2010 from the Sunday Times Wine Club and last enjoyed with a Chicken Tagine (see 22nd Jan 2012).  The wine was fresh and smooth and this time we agreed that the pairing accentuated its citrus lemon, apple and melon flavours.  A good match.
