Name this recipe!


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.

  1. This dish sounds very good and I think it should be called “Cheesy Chicken Marinara” which just about says it all!

  2. I have all these ingredients and will whip it up tonight! Sounds very yummy.
    As to a name…. I like what AC recommended. :)

  3. Hi!! Your blog is great! I added you to my blogroll list! I am not sure what to call this lol. It does sound pretty tasty though. I am following you on twitter as well. Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Hey Michelle! I’d go with Pasta Ricotta. Has a nice ring to it don’t ya think. Plus that whole cup of ricotta should get a special shout out.
