A great baked ziti dish I got from pinterest.
packed fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
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)
shredded, cooked chicken (about 2 small chicken breasts)
DeLallo penne ziti (or any pasta shape)
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.

My kids don't like spicy foods yet but I love enchiladas. I also shy away from preservatives so I love that this recipe is possible without using any. …
Tastes just like Olive Garden's Fettuccine Alfredo recipe.
Hearty dinner with a wonderful flavor. Easily prepared with leftover chicken.
