No-Boil Chicken Penne

No-Boil Chicken Penne 

No-Boil Chicken Penne – cooked chicken, pasta sauce, ricotta, basil, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Everything bakes in the oven, even the pasta! 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! The whole family gobbled this up!

No-Boil pasta casseroles are one of my favorite weeknight meals! It only takes a minute to assemble and the oven does all the work! This No-Boil Chicken Penne is one of our new favorites! Chicken, pasta sauce, ricotta, basil, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. What’s not to like?!?!?!

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!

  1. Sounds great! Do you regular pasta or the no boil kind? I take lunch next week to ladies who are in job training classes. This with a big salad would be perfect. There are 10 ladies so do you think this would be enough or should I double it?
    Thanks bunches,

    1. One more quick question, I have a ton of venison hamburger meat and maybe even some venison italian sausage. Have you ever tried this with anything other than chicken. I'm am imagining a lot of possibilities!
