Saw Chef1MOM's review and had "Picollino" Penne --tiny ones, and much of the suggested additions. Instead of canned tomatoes, had halved grape tomatoes, some fresh broccoli, green onions, (forgot the sugar !) - and canned mushrooms. Added some extra olive oil at the end, and had a very nice all-in-one-dish dinner !!Thanks for posting, E/Nigma

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the chicken in a bowl with the oregano, basil, salt, and pepper.
  2. Sauté in the olive oil over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in the same pan and sauté the shallot until translucent, then add the mushrooms and sauté for a few minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and add the tomatoes, sugar, and penne, stirring well.
  5. Cook the mixture down for a few minutes, then add the mozzarella and 1 tablespoon of the parmesan and stir.
  6. Correct the seasoning (salt and pepper) to taste, and serve topped with remaining parmesan.
