Quick Creamy Parmesan Chicken Penne

Easy and delicious!  I make a similar meal with alfredo sauce in a jar, which can be an alternative for this dish too.  

What I love about this recipe is that it is made in one pan . . . the pasta cooks in the sauce!  Love the concept :)


    • 1 pouch (9 oz) Progresso™ Recipe Starters™ creamy Parmesan basil cooking sauce
    • 2 cups uncooked penne pasta
    • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken (rotisserie, canned or leftovers)
    • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
    • 1 cup diced tomato
    • 1/4 cup Progresso® Italian style panko crispy bread crumbs  


HEAT cooking sauce, 1 1/2 cups water, 1 T. butter, salt and pepper to boiling in large skillet.

STIR in pasta; reduce heat to medium. Cover; cook about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Stir in chicken and cheese.

TOP with tomato and bread crumbs. Serve immediately.
