I came home Sunday evening after spending the weekend at my parents house decorating for Christmas (Which by the way is my FAVORITE time of the year! I love Christmas decorations and my parents have so many that just mean a lot to our family.) Anyways, back to what I was saying, I came home and needed to make a quick dinner with the few supplies I had on hand. So I came up with this delicious, quick, and easy meal.
1 garlic clove
1 chicken breast (or 1 cup shredded chicken)
2 cups pasta (any kind will do, I used rotiniti aka the spiral ones)
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 cup Alfredo sauce
sprinkle of shaved Parmesan
I boiled some water, dropped a garlic clove in with the chicken breast and reduced heat to simmer. I let it cook for about 10 minutes before removing the chicken. Meanwhile, boil some water, add a drop of olive oil and some salt for the pasta and cook according to package. After the chicken is cooled, go ahead and shredded the chicken and season with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Drain the pasta and pour half into a casserole dish, top with mozzarella and chicken, put the rest of the pasta in, add Alfredo sauce and top with Parmesan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.
