Chicken Pasta Bake
This Chicken Pasta Bake is a simple dish to throw together. I often make this one in advance and keep it in the refrigerator until I am ready to cook it. This makes it a fantastic dinner to prepare the night before a busy day. You know those crazy days when you feel like you’ve been running all day and the last thing you want to do is cook dinner.
It’s super easy to put this dish together too. Start by making a sauce from onions, garlic, chili and tomatoes. I always add a spoonful of sugar to the sauce to remove any sharpness from the tomatoes. Stir through the mascarpone. Cook chicken in a pan and boil pasta. Assemble the pasta bake and top with cheese. Bake in the oven until golden and bubbling. Enjoy with a green salad!
