Baked Chicken Pasta

Want an easy dish that’ll feed a crowd? You’ve come to the right place! My Baked Chicken Pasta has spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and a delicious ricotta base. It’s full of flavor and re-heats really well (if you have any leftovers, that is!). 

Baked Chicken Pasta

First, cook the chicken in a skillet and wilt in some spinach while you boil rigatoni.

Lightly beat eggs, whisk in ricotta cheese , then stir in parmesan, sun-dried tomatoes, and Italian parsley. Gently stir the pasta and cooked chicken and spinach into the ricotta mixture, pour into a greased 9×13 pan and bake for 25 minutes. That’s it! It’s delicious served with extra parmesan cheese, freshly torn basil, and garlic bread. Yum!

I was worried that this pasta wouldn’t heat up nicely but it was fantastic left over! Don’t leave out the sun-dried tomatoes. They flavor the whole dish when you stir them into the ricotta mixture before adding everything else.
