I love me some pasta....

So I made oven baked chicken and everyone ended eating elsewhere which left me with 3 huge chicken breast left over. I'd planned to make sausages for supper the next night but just wasn't feeling it. Sooooo....I'm rummaging through my cupboards and found the ingredients for some yummy Ziti. I cooked the sausage and sliced it up, cut up the left over chicken breasts and added them and presto. Pure yumminess.

It was AWESOME!!!

1 Box of Ziti
1 Package of sweet or hot sausages
2 cooked chicken breasts
1 lg can petite diced tomatoes
1 tsp Oregano
S&P to taste
1 lg jar spaghetti sauce
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 package mozzarella cheese

Cook Ziti till almost al dente.
Saute sausages, remove from pan after cooked through and slice. De-glaze pan that the sausages were cooked in with the lg can of diced tomatoes, add oregano, salt and pepper to taste and let simmer.
Combine in deep 9x13 casserole, the chicken, sausage, diced tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. Mix together, cover the top with Mozzarella and bake at 400 until cheese is brown and bubbly. approx. 25-30 mins.


  1. Looks yummy!!

  2. Oh, looks so good! I make something like this that I call stove-top lasagne. I use ground chicken or turkey though instead of chicken breast and sausage. But either way is making my mouth water.

  3. Thanks, Tess and Kate! Your recipe sound delicious, Jessica. I think I'll try that too.

  4. Looks yummy, Debbie! I'll have to try it. :)

  5. Thanks, Lisa! Do try it, it was really good.

  6. Mmm. Pasta! Looks so good! I'm betting hubby and the boys will go nuts over this! :)

  7. Definitely trying this, Deb. Damn yummy lookin'!
