Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Stir water and half the pizza sauce together in the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish. Lie spaghetti atop the sauce mixture. Arrange chicken atop the noodles. Pour remaining sauce over the chicken breasts and spaghetti; top with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking until chicken is no longer pink in the center and cheese is bubbling, 5 to 10 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This came out pretty good, but not awesome. I think the chicken lacked flavor, even though I added Italian seasoning to it. It would have been better if it were breaded with Italian bread crumbs. I used rotini instead of spaghetti. I think the recipe needs double the amount of pizza sauce, mostly to cover the chicken. Also, the sauce/water combo wasn't enough to cover the noodles, so part if it came out hard. It needed more cheese, too. I added mushrooms since I love mushroom pizza, and it gave it some nice flavor. I'd make this again, but with the changes I mentioned.

Well, Rhoda, this certainly took care of our pizza craving AND our comfort food craving! Yum! I thought since you used wheat rigatoni pasta that it would be OK for me to use my Trader Joe's pasta. I also used TJ's Traditional Marinara Sauce. Since this was just for the two of us, I pared down the recipe for 2 servings. But then I goofed and put all the required sauce on the bottom with the uncooked pasta. That meant that I needed to add more for the top layer. But no problem! It all worked out well. Delicious! Not free of calories, but certainly free of required work to fix dinner! Thanks for making us happy campers!

This is my recipe. I used wheat rigatoni pasta, not spaghetti. Also, I used deli sliced mozzarella, not shredded
