Chicken Parmesan Baked Pasta-chicken parmesan and cheesy baked pasta are made in one pan! This easy cheese baked pasta is a family favorite dinner!
Josh and I have been married for over nine years and have been cooking together since day one. Literally from day one because we made all of the food for our wedding:) Well, some people still don’t believe that Josh knows how to cook…until they come over for dinner and see him in action. He really knows his way around the kitchen and I am SO thankful for that. I love having a partner who shares my passion for food. Of course, we have some “heated” moments in the kitchen (and not romantic heated moments..ha!) but most of the time our kitchen is full of love and deliciousness!
One of Josh’s favorite recipes to make is this Chicken Parmesan Baked Pasta. It is a Josh staple for sure! He loves it and our boys love it too. It is one of their favorite dinner recipes!
If you love chicken parmesan, you will LOVE Josh’s Chicken Parmesan Baked Pasta. It is pure COMFORT FOOD! This twist on a classic dish is even better because everything is baked in one pan, making it an easy, cheesy, and delicious dinner.
The cheesy baked pasta is made with chicken, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, marinara sauce, and a parmesan panko topping! Finish it off with fresh basil and talk about a dinner winner! Josh usually serves garlic bread on the side making it the perfect carbolicious meal! If I am home, I will usually whip up a simple salad to go with too:)
A few tips for this easy baked pasta recipe:
- You need 2 cups of cooked chicken for this recipe. It is a great recipe for using up leftover chicken. If you don’t have leftover chicken, you can cook up some chicken real quick in a skillet. PRO TIP-use shredded rotisserie chicken to save time. Both cubed and shredded chicken work well in this recipe.
- Josh uses penne pasta, but ziti, farfalle, or fuisilli are also good options. Use whatever pasta you have in your pantry.
- Josh uses my homemade Slow Cooker Marinara Sauce, but you can use your favorite jarred pasta sauce.
- You can prep this baked pasta in advance. Put everything in the pan, cover with foil, and put in the fridge until you are ready to bake. The pasta dish reheats well, the boys love eating the leftovers. It is also a great dish to take to friends and family who are in need of a meal.
