Ooey Gooey Chicken Pasta

I love easy meals. And anything that include pasta and mozzarella is automatically a winner in my mind.

So you can imagine that this "Ooey Gooey Chicken Pasta" by Kelly was a huge hit for me! The only thing I'd do differently is add more sauce; I definitely didn't have enough. (This dinner also reminded me that I haven't made my own sauce in a very long time...)

  • 1 package chicken tenders
  • 1 large jar of spaghetti sauce
  • 1 box whole wheat pasta
  • 3/4 cup of ff ricotta cheese
  • 1-2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook chicken via your preferred method; I threw it onto my grill pan for about five minutes on each side. Let it cool and then pull apart with fingers or finely chop.

Cook pasta as directed. In a sauce pan, add shredded chicken and spaghetti sauce and whatever spices you like (I use garlic, onion and crushed red pepper). Simmer on low-med until warmed through.

Drain and pour pasta into your baking dish. Add ricotta cheese and about half of the mozzarella and mix into hot noodles. Pour spaghetti sauce mixture over pasta and mix in. Top with the remaining shredded cheese. Bake on 350 for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!
