Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb Skinless boneless chicken breast; cut into 1/4" strips
  • 1 Onion; chopped
  • 2 Cloves garlic; minced
  • 28 oz Crushed tomatoes; no salt added
  • 1 ts Black pepper
  • 1/2 ts Italian Seasoning
  • 2 c Penne pasta
  • 2/3 c Fat-free ricotta cheese
  • 1/3 c Shredded lowfat mozzarella cheese

1. Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray; heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning as needed, until lightly browned, 5-6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
 
2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
 
3. Spray the same skillet with more nonstick cooking spary. Add the onion and garlic; cook, stirring as needed, until softened, about 5 minutes.
