DIRECTIONS 

In a pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta 7-8 minutes for al dente. 

While pasta cooks, in a large pot, add next 3 ingredients on high heat.  Cook for 1 minute then deglaze with white wine.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cook until reduced by half and add the next 4 ingredients.   

In a separate pan, fry garlic chips until crispy.  Drain on a paper towel and reserve for garnish. 

Turn off heat, add pasta to the pot with a touch of pasta water, and add butter.  Stir together until butter is a melted and the starch in the pasta has created a sauce.
