I decided I needed to clean up some leftovers and thought I would start with the extra pizza sauce I had made. Any tomato sauce will work; I just happened to have the extra sauce from the pizza. I choose to use asparagus, chicken and mushrooms; but broccoli instead of asparagus or sausage in place of the chicken would be great too.
Bow-tie Pasta with Chicken and Tomato Sauce
- 2 cups uncooked bow-tie pasta; any shape will work
- 1 boneless chicken breast – sliced
- 1 cup diced mushrooms
- 1 cup diced asparagus
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 2 cups sauce
Cook pasta according to package directions. In medium skillet heat a little olive oil. Add chicken sliced and cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip pieces of chicken over and add mushrooms, asparagus, and garlic. Continue cooking 4 – 5 more minutes until mushrooms are tender and chicken is cooked through. Stir in sauce and cooked pasta. Pour into oiled baking dish, sprinkle with some fresh grated parmesan, and bake at 375 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes. Add additional parmesan if desired just before serving.
