Chicken Pasta Casserole by Antonia Bailey from Auckland



500g packet penne pasta

1 red onion, diced

500g chicken mince

pinch of salt

pinch of black pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed whichever is easiest

Jar of Pasta sauce

300g cheese (I use edam)

2 tbsp. butter

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1 tsp dried basil leaves cut

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese



Cook pasta according to package in lightly salted boiling water

Ensure baking dish is well oiled (I use spray oil) to minimise sticking

Add onion, chicken and salt to a fry brown and sauté until chicken is cooked through and onions are transparent, stir in pasta sauce and bring to a light simmer

Melt butter (I find the microwave fastest) stir in bread crumbs and basil

Add pasta and cheese to sauce and take off heat

Place pasta in prepared baking dish, sprinkle over bread crumb mix then parmesan

Bake in oven 180 oven until brown!
