Ingredients

  • 16 ounces Mini Bowtie Farfalle Pasta
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ medium sweet yellow onion diced
  • 1 red pepper ribs and seeds removed, diced
  • 1 medium yellow squash cut into ½“ pieces
  • 1 medium zucchini cut into ½“ pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup dry white wine or unsalted chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream or Half-and-Half
  • 3 cups rotisserie chicken meat shredded or cubed
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese grated, divided
  • 1 cup shaved Parmesan or shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 10.5 ounce container of Glory or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
  • Unsalted chicken broth as needed for thinning.

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 350°F and spray a 9x13-inch casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions for al dente. Drain and set aside.
  3. Heat a Dutch oven over medium heat and add the butter and oil. When the butter has stopped bubbling, add the diced onion and red pepper, and sauté the mixture for 2 minutes. Add the chopped squash and zucchini. Sprinkle the vegetables with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes (the vegetables should be almost fork-tender).
  5. Add the minced garlic, stir and cook 1 minute.
  6. Add the wine, while scraping the bottom of the pan, to deglaze the pan. Cook for 2 minutes.
  7. Reduce the heat to medium-low.
  8. Add the heavy cream, whisking constantly, and season with salt and pepper, if needed. Cook the mixture for 2 minutes to thicken.
  9. Add the drained pasta, chicken and ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese. Stir until well combined.
  10. If the pasta/chicken mixture seems too thick, add additional chicken broth to thin a little.
  11. Pour the pasta mixture into the prepared casserole dish (*see note) and sprinkle the shredded or shaved Parmesan over the top.
  12. Spread the halved tomatoes on top and sprinkle with the other ½ cup of grated Parmesan.
  13. Bake at 350°F for 20-30 minutes.
  14. Remove the Pasta Bake from the oven and sprinkle with fresh, chopped basil.
  15. Enjoy!
