Number of Servings: 16


    4 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce
    2 teaspoons dried basil
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon white pepper
    1 (12 ounce) package uncooked penne pasta
    1 (12 ounce) chicken tenders (not breaded)
    1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


1.Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F.
2.Bring the tomato sauce, basil, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, garlic, and white pepper to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, and keep at a simmer. In another pan cook the chicken breast about 5 mins on each side. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the penne, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 7 minutes. Drain well. Add cooked chicken to noodles.
3.Spread half of the pasta sauce into the bottom of a 13 x 9 casserole dish, then add the drained pasta mixture. Pour the remaining sauce on top of the pasta, then sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned, about 30 minutes.

  • Very Good
    I really enjoyed this! So did my Grandmother who is extremely picky and my husband. The only thing I did different was I added italian seasoning instead of the dried basil. - 3/3/10
