Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Italian dressing not the creamy kind
  • 3 chicken breasts boneless, skinless, cut into cubes
  • 16 ounces rigatoni pasta small/medium
  • 1 24 ounce Marinara sauce I love Delallo's
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh basil for garnish optional

Instructions

  1. Heat chicken and Italian dressing in a large 12 inch skillet over medium high heat (If you don't own a large skillet, you can use a stock pot). Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Cook chicken until browned and just cooked through, about 5 minutes depending on thickness of chicken.

  3. Add the box of pasta and the entire jar of marinara. Fill the empty marinara jar with water and add to the skillet. If using a stockpot, use 2 cups water. Lightly stir the mixture to combine.

  4. Bring mixture to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until pasta is tender to your liking. ***SEE NOTE

  5. Cover with grated parmesan and then shredded mozzarella. No need to stir. Continue to cook for 2-3 more minutes or until cheese is fully melted. You can also broil the entire skillet for about 4 minutes to make the cheese extra melty!

  6. Top with chopped basil (optional) and serve! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

***The pasta in the middle of the skillet and underneath will be more tender than the outside pasta. It's okay if those pieces are a bit toastier and less soft. The inside will be plenty soft.

I made this tonight and it was so delicious!!!! This is a simple dish and you can add variety to it. Italian sausage would be good too....I do LOVE it as is though!
    Becky Hardin
    YAY! So glad you loved it and I love the sausage idea! I'm going to try it that way next time. That would add such a punch of flavor. Thanks for stopping by and saying hi :)

Shelia M. Keesee

This was awesome and a real hit with the picky grandkida! Thanks!

While I love red sauce of any kind, I have a an 18 yo son who does not - do you think this would translate well into a white sauce?
    Becky Hardin
    I do! I think it would hopefully work about the same. I haven't tried it that way, but I don't see why it wouldn't still cook up correctly. If you try it, let me know! Hope you love it :)

What type of Italian dressing do you use?
Randy Howard
I am retired and now cook nearly all of our meals and love it. My wife pinned this recipe for me and it is so easy to prepare. Great meal for a blustery, cool spring evening.
Niki
I made this tonight and it's delicious. I marinated the chicken pieces in Italian dressing for a few hours for some extra flavor.
