473 (Small)Another great dish from Giada !  How many times have I said that on this blog? LOL – this was perfect, made so much, and re-heated for quick lunches over the weekend perfectly!  As always , the picture does not do it any justice!

  • 1 cup small pasta (I used Ditalini)
  • 2 chicken breasts cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 clove garlic either minced or pressed with a garlic press
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 14.5 oz can roasted garlic diced tomatoes (undrained)
  • 8 oz mozzarella, cubed
  • 1/4 cup italian bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter
  • salt and pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley


    Heat oven to 400

    Bring salted water to a boil and cook pasta according to package directions

    While pasta is cooking saute chicken ( seasoned with salt and pepper, and some garlic powder ) in a small frying pan coated in cooking spray or olive oil for about 3 minutes

    Add onions, garlic, and red pepper and stir occasionally until chicken is cooked through and onions are tender

    Drain pasta and pour into a mixing bowl. Add cubed mozzarella, tomatoes and chicken mixture, stirring to combine. Pour pasta mixture into greased 8″x8″ baking dish

    Mix together parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, parsley,  and melted butter until combined then sprinkle over top of pasta mixture

    Bake for 25 minutes or until bread crumb topping is browned and sides of pan are bubbling
