#3408 - Baked Chicken Penne Pasta

(by Shirley McNevich)

24oz. raw penne pasta
2 TBSP olive oil
2lbs. boneless/skinless chicken breasts
salt/pepper (for the chicken)
12oz. frozen broccoli (thawed and drained)
32oz. Alfredo sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook the penne pasta according to box directions, then drain the pasta and put the drained pasta back in the pot. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken, then cut the chicken into bite sized pieces. In a skillet over medium heat add the olive oil and the chicken pieces--cook/stir until chicken is done. Add the chicken pieces and drained broccoli to the drained pasta. Add the Alfredo sauce to the pasta mixture--stir to mix. Spread the whole mixture into a greased 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese all over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until mixture is hot and cheese is melted.
