Stunning, convenient and tasty, nothing beats the goodness of Italian Chicken Pasta Bake. To learn how to make Italian Chicken Pasta Bake correctly, you need to have all of the proper material and ingredients. The items that you will need are non-stick cooking spray, baking dish,diced onions, minced garlic cloves, diced zucchinis, sliced mushrooms, crushed tomatoes and uncooked chicken and bacon tortellini.
To start out on the right path let your stove preheat to 400 degree. Now you can get your non-stick cooking spray and coat your baking dish. Now you can heat the skillet to medium-high and coat it with non-stick cooking spray just like you did the baking sheet.
Next you can start to add your ingredients. First, place one quarter cup of diced white onions followed by two cups of minced garlic cloves. Stir and let them saute for just a minute until the onions become translucent and you start to see the smooth brown coating within the skillet from the mixture. After this, add two small diced zucchinis along with eight ounces of sliced mushrooms. Once they are added you will stir and let them saute for five minutes.
Once this is done you can add two 14 and a half cans of crushed tomatoes, one table spoon of Italian Seasoning, a half teaspoon of black pepper, salt and sugar. These ingredients will help to even out the flavor. Now you can mix everything together thoroughly allowing all the flavors to marinate together. Now simply turn off the heat and add one Rotisserie chicken to the mixture that has been de-boned and chopped coarsely.
Now its time to add some shredded Italian cheese to the mixture. You will need two cups, however, one cup will be for the current mixture and the other cup will be saved for later to be used as a topping for the entire dish. When the first cup of cheese is added in with the other ingredients, stir them in for a few minutes so that everything in the skillet will blend well together.
After this, you can move on to your pasta bake to prepare it to be placed in the oven. For this you will need to add nine ounces of uncooked chicken and bacon tortellini to the baking dish and use your mixing spoon to even out the layers of the pasta within the dish so that they are somewhat flat.
The next thing you will do is scoop and place all of the mixture on top of the pasta bake evenly using the spoon to coat and flatten it. Now this is where the second cup of cheese comes into play. Apply the other cup of Italian cheese over the entire mixture evenly.
Now you can place the baking dish in the oven for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees or until the cheese begins to bubble. This is the final step and all that is left to do is to wait until it is done and enjoy your Italian Chicken Pasta Bake.
