What Is Penne Mariscos?

Penne Mariscos is a classic Italian-Mexican fusion dish. It is a creamy tomato-based pasta with succulent bits of chicken or seafood, bell peppers, mushrooms, and Parmesan cheese. Its unique flavor comes from the combination of spicy chili pepper and savory garlic.

The dish can be served either as an entrée or as a side dish, depending on your preference. It pairs well with a variety of wines, from whites like Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio to reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Penne Maricsos is also versatile – you can customize it to your taste buds by adding extra vegetables or protein like shrimp or sausage. It can even be made vegan-friendly with a few simple substitutions.

How To Make Penne Mariscos?

Making Penne Mariscos is relatively easy. First, boil the penne noodles until they are al dente, or slightly undercooked.

  • Begin by heating olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken pieces (you can alternate chicken with squid, shrimp, or any seafood if you want) and cook for about 8 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Cook the bell peppers and mushrooms for an additional 5 minutes before. Remember to stir in the garlic and chili pepper.
  • Follow up, mix in the tomato sauce and blend everything together. Allow it to simmer for 10 minutes or until heated completely.
  • To finish, add the cooked penne noodles and cheese to the pot. Stir until everything is mixed together, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve piping hot with Parmesan cheese, fresh herbs, and extra chili flakes if desired.
