This is another one of my no-boil pasta dishes. I am officially obsessed with this cooking technique! This no-boil pasta is my take on Chicken Parmesan Pasta. It has all the flavors of Chicken Parmesan without the frying. I used chopped chicken in the pasta and added some bread crumbs and mozzarella cheese on top. It was SO delicious! This makes a ton and is very filling. Plan on feeding a crowd or having leftovers for lunch.
