Description: A great baked ziti dish I got from pinterest.

1/4 cup  packed fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
1/3 cup  freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups  shredded mozzarella cheese (I used 2% low fat)
1 (25 ounce) jar  DeLallo Pomodoro Fresco Tomato-Basil Sauce (pasta sauce)
2 cups  shredded, cooked chicken (about 2 small chicken breasts)
12 ounces  DeLallo penne ziti (or any pasta shape)

Instructions: DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2.Cook the pasta al dente in a large stockpot of well-salted boiling according to package instructions. Drain. Return pasta to the stockpot and add chicken and tomato sauce. Gently toss to combine until the pasta is evenly coated.
3.Pour half of the pasta into a greased 11x7-inch or 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, half of the Parmesan cheese and half of the basil. Layer the remaining half of the pasta evenly on top. Sprinkle evenly with the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese.
4.Bake for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is melted and just barely starts to turn golden. Remove and sprinkle immediately with the remaining Parmesan cheese and fresh basil. Serve warm.
