This is one of my favorite pasta dishes. I actually prepared it for a girlfriend of mine the other day who just delivered their first baby. I knew it was important for her to have proper nutrition, so in this meal I was cooking light and healthy, but stocked it full of flavor. She gave rave reviews on this healthy, easy to make, easy to heat, and savory Mediterranean-like meal.
Try it for yourself and let me know. The preparation takes about 10 minutes, then baking for about 15minutes. This is my style, healthy and fast meal in just minutes.
1 Package Whole Wheat Penne Pasta
2 Rotissere Shredded Chicken Breasts
4 chopped Artichoke Hearts (use organic jar)
3 Chopped Tomatoes or 1 can of Organic Chopped Tomatoes
2 cups Organic Tomato sauce of your choice
4 Table spoons of Asaigo Cheese
dash of Basil
dash of Oregano
dash of Thyme
Begin by boiling the pasta then proceed to chopping or shredding the chicken, artichokes, and tomatoes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Drain and rinse pasta. Place in a casserole dish. Mix in Shredded chicken, artichokes, and tomatoes. Next blend 2 tablespoons of Asaigo cheese, the tomato sauce of your choice, and all the seasonings. Finish with the final 2 tablespoons of Asaigo cheese on the top. Wipe the edges before baking in oven.
Bake in oven for 10-15min
