    One recommendation I have for this recipe is to opt for a cheaper balsamic vinegar. Prices and quality range greatly and price doesn’t necessarily correlate with quality.

    For something like balsamic reduction or salad dressing, you want a good, quality balsamic vinegar. But for this, go for the cheap stuff. It is mixed with so many other things that the quality won’t really shine through. In fact, it might be overwhelming.

    So what makes it so good? The original balsamic vinegar is made from reducing white Trebbiano grape juice. The original process is still in practice, the product that it produces is very expensive going for up to $200 per ounce!

    That is SO out of my budget! The cost comes from aging the product to reduce and thicken for a period of 12 years or more. This will be labeled as Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale. Chances are you won’t find it at your regular grocery store, so don’t worry about accidentally buying it.

    Regular store-bought balsamic vinegar is a combination of wine vinegar and other ingredients to simulate the taste and texture of the real (and expensive) stuff. This is the stuff you want to use for Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken Pasta.

    The third type of balsamic vinegar will be labeled condiment grade balsamic vinegar, which is aged less than 12 years and usually combination for the regular store-bought stuff and the traditionally prepared. This is the “good” stuff I keep on hand for salads, finishing and reductions.

    Come your cheap balsamic vinegar with a handful of ingredients you probably already have in the pantry and you are all set. Balsamic Chicken Pasta is also a freezer-friendly recipe, so make double!
