I created a dish, I am certain it’s not original but I don’t know what to call it. So I’ll let you, my readers and followers, come up with the name. So here is what I used.
1 pound of penne pasta
3 cups cooked chicken breast meat
1 cup of ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
28 ounce can of crushed tomatoes
1 small can of tomato paste
1 teaspoon each of dried basil, oregano and garlic powder
1 teaspoon minced onion
fresh ground pepper and kosher salt, about a teaspoon of each
Cook noodles about 1 min. before al dente stage. Meanwhile make quick sauce with herbs, tomatoes and salt/pepper. Cook about 10 minutes. Cube chicken add to a 9 x 13 baking dish that you sprayed or oiled. Add in noodles, ricotta cheese and then sauce. Stir. Sprinkle with mozzarella and bake for 25 min. at 350 degrees. Serve with a salad or green vegetable.
Very simple, very quick and creamy. It was gobbled up quick and we even had some leftovers for Phil’s lunch today. So what do I call it? I hate “casserole” in a recipe name as it seems to imply a cream soup will be used. Help me out will ya? Leave your best recipe name in the comments.
