I used half of a rotisserie chicken in this recipe. I always have some rotisserie chicken in the freezer for casseroles. I used a jar of Trader Joe's Roasted Garlic Marinara sauce. It is my absolute favorite jarred pasta sauce. I use it in all my pasta casseroles!
This makes a lot. We ate it for dinner and lunch the next day. It was equally delicious reheated. Serve with with some crusty garlic bread and a salad for an easy weeknight meal!
