Default Baked Chicken Penne

Baked Chicken Penne


1 (12-oz) box Ronzoni Garden Delight Penne Rigate
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved and sliced into chunks or strips
1/4 cup diced onion
3 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan (not that powder junk)
2 cups prepared marinara sauce
1 cup prepared Alfredo sauce
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. dried basil (or 1 tbs freshly chopped)
1 tsp. dried oregano (or 1 tbs freshly chopped)
1 tsp. dried rosemary (or 1 tbs freshly chopped)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and bring water to boil for pasta.

At the same time, add pasta to water to cook and get chicken started. Drain pasta when done, return to pot and set aside.

To a heated skillet with EVOO, add onion, garlic and chicken. Saute on a med/med-high setting until chicken is no longer pink. Sprinkle on the pepper and herbs while cooking. Drain and add to the pot with pasta.

Mix in the marinara and Alfredo sauces. Transfer to a 3-qt baking dish, and top with Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.
