This one pot pasta is the perfect comfort food!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic
- 8 oz medium pasta (penne, shells or rotini)
- 14 oz can diced tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 1/2 - 3 cups of water
- 1/2 teaspoon basil
- 1/2 teaspoon oregano
- 2 cups chopped cooked chicken (I used rotisserie chicken)
- 1/2 cup heavy cream (or evaporated milk for a lighter version)
- 6 oz shredded italian blend cheese
- 1 cup mozzarella shredded
- 1 cup parmesan cheese shredded
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Heat oil in a large oven-proof skillet. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.
Stir in pasta, canned tomatoes, water and tomato paste. Let simmer about 2 minutes less than package calls for so pasta is VERY al dente.
Remove from heat and stir in chicken, seasonings, and cream. Top with shredded cheese.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is browned.
