Baked Pasta with Chicken

When the colder fall weather begins I always start making soups, chili and casseroles. The Baked Pasta with Chicken is a great way to use leftovers. I still have some zucchini that I have not frozen and thought this would add to the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of chicken (I used boneless skinless chicken breast)
  • 2 jars of spaghetti sauce (I have homemade sauce which I freeze for use during the year)
  • 1 12 oz box of pasta
  • 1 medium zucchini cubed
  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella or provolone cheese.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

1. Cook 1 pound of chicken and cook it. Cut chicken into bite size pieces
