I have wanted to make something like this for a long time. I’m all about the easy skillet meals, and you wouldn’t believe how easy pasta is to make in a skillet! Just cover that bad boy and it does all the work for you! Virtually zero cleanup (because you will finish all the Chicken Parmesan Pasta, trust me), and no fail. Impress friends or family with virtually no effort at all. Comfort food made easy, that’s my specialty.
~ 1 tablespoon olive oil or Italian dressing
~ 3 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
~ 1/2 (16-ounce) package Market Pantry Rotini (about 2 1/2 cups)
~ One 24-ounce jar pasta sauce
~ 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
~ 1/2 cup shredded or 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
~ Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink in center.
~ Add pasta and sauce. Fill empty pasta sauce jar with water. Add to skillet. Stir. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15 to 18 minutes until pasta is tender, stirring halfway through.
~ Sprinkle with cheeses. Cook 2 minutes longer to melt cheese.
If you don’t have a 12-inch skillet, use a stock pot and reduce water to 2 cups.
