Make and share this Chicken and Ziti Bake (7 Pts) recipe from Food.com.
- 1⁄2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast (cut into 1/4-inch strips)
- 1 onion (chopped)
- 2 garlic cloves (minced)
- 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes ((no salt added)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground)
- 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 2 cups ziti pasta or 2 cups penne pasta
- 2⁄3 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
- 1⁄3 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese (shredded)
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray; heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning as needed, until lightly browned, 5-6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Spray the same skillet with more nonstick cooking spray. Add the onion and garlic; cook, stirring as needed, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, Italian seasoning and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring as needed, until the mixture is thickened slightly, 8-10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cook the ziti according to package directions. Drain and mix with the ricotta cheese.
- Pour half of the tomato mixture into a 13X9" baking pan, layer with the ziti mixture, the chicken and the remaining tomato mixture. Sprinkle with the cheeses. Bake until hot and bubbling and the cheese is melted, 15-20 minutes.
- Serves 4.
