Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time6 hrs 20 mins
Total Time6 hrs 40 mins
- 48 oz Ragu Pasta Sauce
- 1.5 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
- ¼ tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. pepper
- ½ tsp. oregano
- 1 lb. penne pasta cooked according to package directions
- 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
Add the chicken to a 6-quart or larger slow cooker. Sprinkle over the salt, pepper, and oregano. Pour over the pasta sauce.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 6-8 hours, without opening the lid during the cooking time.
When the cooking time is done, prepare the pasta on the stove-top according to the package directions.
While the pasta is cooking, remove the chicken on to a plate and cut into bite-size pieces, the chicken will shred very easy, but I still like to cut it up a bit so there aren't long strings of chicken. Add the chicken back to the sauce.
Drain the pasta very well. Add the pasta to the chicken and sauce in the slow cooker. Stir. Flatten the pasta out into an even layer. Sprinkle over the shredded mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese. Cover for 15 more minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
Serve and enjoy!
A different type of pasta can be substituted in this recipe. Make sure it's another sturdy noodle such as rigatoni, bow-tie or large shells. I do not recommend egg noodles for they fall apart very easily.
