  • 1 16 oz package penne pasta
  • 2 12.5 oz cans chunk chicken, drained and rinsed and shredded
  • 1 22 oz jar Alfredo sauce
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1 16 oz package of fresh sliced mozzarella cheese
  • water

  2. Spray a 13 x 9 casserole dish with olive oil spray.  Set aside.
  3. Make the penne according to the package.
  4. While the penne is cooking, drain and rinse the chicken and then shred it.
  5. When the penne is ready, add the ricotta and garlic.
  6. Add the chicken and Alfredo sauce and mix thoroughly.
  7. Transfer the pasta to the casserole dish and spread evenly.
  8. Place the slices of mozzarella cheese over the entire top of the casserole.
  9. Bake for 35 minutes, until bubbly.
  10. Turn the broiler on high and cook for an additional 2 1/2 to 3 minutes to brown the cheese just a tiny bit – watch carefully!
  11. Let it sit for a few minutes before serving.

Notes

If you prefer not to use canned chicken, cook 2 chicken breasts how you like and shred them.  I prefer canned chicken because it is extremely tender and mixes well in with the pasta.
