DO YOU SEE THAT CHEESE? I have a love affair with stretchy cheese. Don’t tell Pat. Actually, he’s quite aware. If comfort food is going to be a favorite at our house…it MUST have stretchy cheese, be super easy to make, and pair well with wine. Is that too much to ask?

This One Pan Chicken Parmesan Pasta Skillet is TO DIE FOR. Full of flavor, only 6 ingredients (THAT’S RIGHT), and obviously, the most amount of cheese legally possible. Obviously.

Usually getting the perfect stretchy cheese shot can be quite a chore. Adding extra around the edges, reheating, snapping hundreds of pics just to get the right one. But not with this recipe. It stays nice and toasty and melty right there in the skillet and there’s so much cheese to go around, you look like a natural right away. How great would spooning that up to your loved ones look on your dinner table? THE. BEST.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Italian dressing (not the creamy kind)
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • 16 ounces small/medium sized rigatoni pasta
  • 1 24-ounce jar of your favorite Marinara pasta sauce (I love Delallo's)
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 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. ***
  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!
  7. ***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!

    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 :)

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.
