Jinxed! And Chicken Parmesan and Penne- 10 with 5 recipe #3
I told you all the other day that I was going to jinx my good stretch of days by saying something! Thursday morning my husband got into a car accident (see photo below)on his way to work. It had snowed over night and although clear the roads were still a little wet. Traffic ahead of him on the highway had stopped, so he stopped, but the car behind him (a Jeep Cherokee) didn't and hit him going about 70mph. My husband is thankfully o.k., but the car is totaled. Needless to say, we are now down to one car for the time being and it's been a mad race to try to get our schedules straight. I apologize to all my Foodbuzz buddies and fellow 10 with 5 blogers for being lax in my comments, but please know that I have been buzzing you!
What was my husband's 1998 Volvo v70 Cross Country.
On to my pasta dish! I made this last Wednesday night with every intention to share it with you all Thursday, but things got crazy here and no post happened. I am sharing it with you now though and hope you'll give it a try!
Chicken Parmesan and Penne
1 to 1.5 lbs chicken breasts or tenders, cut up
29 oz of your favorite marinara sauce (I make my own)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
8 Tbs (divided) grated Parmesan cheese
1 lb penne pasta, cooked and drained
Combine sauce and 6Tbs Parmesan in a 13x9 inch baking dish
Cut up the chicken. Season with salt & pepper
Fold in uncooked chicken. Cover and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Uncover, and top with the mozzarella cheese and remaining 2 Tbs Parmesan. Return to the oven, uncovered to melt the cheese
Serve over cooked penne pasta with Caesar salad and garlic bread on the side.
Hoping for a better week!
