So I had some fresh mozzarella that was almost to the point where it would go bad so I had to figure out a dish to incorporate it in…. I had a ton of Penne, Vodka Sauce, basil and chicken on hand so this is what I came up with:


1 Box Penne Pasta

1-2 Jars Vodka Sauce (I used Barilla)

Fresh Mozzarella (I used 2 packages of the small balls – can use fresh large balls)

Fresh Basil diced

1 lb Chicken Breast (cooked and pulled/cubed)

3-4 cloves Roasted Garlic (bake in foil w/olive oil for 10 min)


Preheat oven to 400 F.  Boil pasta and drain.  Place in casserole dish and add one jar of Vodka sauce.  Add small mozzarella balls – or larger balls cut up to small pieces (but save some for the topping), fresh basil, roasted garlic, chicken pieces and stir to mix.  Add additional vodka sauce if desired.  Top with additional fresh mozzarella pieces and bake at 400 for 20-25 min.

Ended up with tons of leftovers and realized its a very Economical meal if you buy the Chicken and Sauces on sale.  Hope everyone enjoys….
