“The use of precooked chicken and sauce that comes in a jar make this dish fast and easy to assemble.” The sun-dried tomatoes give this cheesy casserole a sophisticated feel; it's great for company. -Robin Klawinski of Eagle, Idaho

Ingredients

  • 3-3/4 cups uncooked penne pasta
  • 2 jars (15 ounces each) sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce
  • 2 packages (9 ounces each) ready-to-use Southwestern chicken strips
  • 2 cups oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
  • 1 jar (6 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 4 green onions, sliced

  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.

  3. Cover and bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until heated through. Uncover; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 5-8 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
