Creamy Chicken Rosa Bake


I recently received a package of two new sauces from Bertolli as part of Foodbuzz.com's Tastemaker Program- Four Cheese Rosa and Arrabiatta.  I had a Creamy Chicken Alfredo Bake recipe bookmarked in my Deen Bros Take it Easy cookbook, and I decided to change it up to use the Four Cheese Rosa sauce.  It turned out great!  This is one of my new favorite dishes.  The sauce was so good - no one would ever know it came from a jar!  It was nice and creamy with just the right amount of tomato blended in.  This dish was really easy to put together and could easily be assembled early and just thrown in the oven after work. 

I served the pasta with some Cheesy Pinwheel rolls.  I used a half batch of the cheesy pinwheels and put them in muffin tins to make rolls.  They are highly addictive, so be warned!











Creamy Chicken Rosa Bake
(Printable Recipe)


2 cups penne pasta
1/4 cup pasta water.
2 large chicken breast, cooked and chopped (I seasoned the chicken with some garlic seasoning)
1 jar (15oz) Bertolli Four Cheese Rosa sauce
1 cup frozen green peas
2 oz Asiago cheese, grated (or Parmesan)

Preheat oven to 375.

In large saucepan, cook the penne pasta for 7-9 minutes (al dente).  Reserve 1/4 cup pasta water. Drain the pasta and return to pan.  Add chicken, peas, sauce and pasta water.  (I dumped the sauce into the pan and added the pasta water to the sauce jar and shook it to get the remaining sauce out of the jar).  Mix well.

Transfer mixture to 9x13 pan.  Top with grated cheese and bake for 25 minutes.

  1. What a great looking meal and the rolls even look addictive. Since you're the second blogger this week with positive things to say about the cheeses sauce, we must give it a try.

  2. I agree with Big Dude, great looking meal. I really like Bertolli products. Their frozen pasta entrees are really good.

  3. I've seen that sauce kicking around the blogosphere for a while, but this is definitely the best use I've seen for it yet.

  4. That looks excellent, who cares if part of it was from a jar? BERTOLLI! (said in the angry chef's voice from the commercial, lol)

    Those rolls look amazing too.

  8. How did you cook the chicken beforehand? Never sure if its best to bake, boil or pan-fry.

  9. TheMoMo - I prefer to bake it with a little garlic salt sprinkled on the chicken. I also like to use rotisserie chicken from Sams or Costco.
