We had a quickly thrown together Chicken Pasta Bake. I cooked 2 cups of pasta (penne to be exact) until just tender, then sauteed some onion and garlic in a pan with a little olive oil (I might even add some sliced mushrooms or cubed eggplant next time around at this stage). I used about a cup or so of cooked, diced chicken and threw all of the above into a casserole with 1 cup shredded swiss cheese and 1 cup shredded parmesan. Stir in 1 large can of diced tomatoes (28oz), some dried parsley and oregano flakes and salt & pepper to taste. Top with a mixture of breadcrumbs and parmesan to cover the top. Bake in an oven for 30 minutes at 400 degrees and that's it.
James was very happy, and so was his brother Camden, and my husband Glen. Everyone cleaned their plates and Camden actually said 'you make a good pasta bake mama!'
Music to my ears!
