Once again a very easy dinner recipe. We used to have this dish quite often in pre lil A days, but somehow I completely forgot about it. Later I made pasta quite some times but never baked it. Few weeks back I was craving a good pasta dish, and my husband suddenly reminded me about it. I was like, why I did not make it again till now? And given that lil A loves pasta!
That is when I geared up to make the marinara sauce a day before so it will not be a lot of work.
Try this, it can be a hearty dinner if you are a carboholic like me.
Pasta (any kind, I used bow tie one) - 1 cup uncooked. Cook it al dente in pot of water with pinch of salt in it.
Green Pepper - 1 medium, diced
Chicken breasts (diced) - 1 cup
Onions - 1 medium, thinly sliced
Marinara sauce (or any other sauce you like) - 1/2 cup
Oil - 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Cook the pasta in a pot till al dente.
Heat oil in a pan and saute the onions till translucent.
Add in the chicken pieces and green pepper and cook it for 5-6 minutes or till chicken becomes almost cooked.
Add half a cup of marinara sauce and mix well. Cook for a minute or two.
Add the pasta to it and cook it for 2-3 minutes. Arrange it on a baking dish.
Grate generous amount of any cheese of your choice to cover the pasta up. I only had cheese slices at that time, but was craving the dish so bad that I decided to go ahead with it.
|Not a very pretty picture though!|
I like it slightly overbaked.
Enjoy your pasta.
