Chicken and Penne Pasta Bake

This recipe is one that I literally just threw together one night. It is amazing and one of my husband's favorites. 

Here is what you will need:

 1 box penne pasta
1 jar any flavor spaghetti sauce
2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
mozzarella cheese
italian seasoning
crushed or minced garlic
olive oil

Cut the chicken breasts into cubes 

In a skillet saute about a tablespoon of minced garlic with 3 tablespoons of olive oil for about 1-2 minutes

Add the chicken and cook it until it is white on the outside

I add roughly 2-3 tablespoons of italian seasoning to the chicken

Pour in 1 jar of spaghetti sauce

Then add 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese and mix well.

While you are preparing the chicken and sauce, cook the penne pasta until al dente.

Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and add to the sauce/chicken mixture

Add 1 cup of mozzarella cheese until combine it all together

Pour pasta into a baking dish 

Add a little more cheese for the top (yes there is a lot of cheese lol)

Place into a 350 degree oven and bake for 15-20 minutes.

I usually serve mine with some homemade garlic bread and some parmesan cheese on top (yes we like cheese haha)
