  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the rotini, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  3. Stir together the rotini, chicken, and mozzarella cheese in a large casserole dish. Pour the marinara sauce over the pasta mixture; sprinkle with bread crumbs. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is entirely melted, about 35 minutes.

This sounded easy, fast, and tasty. I tried it with penne, since the store was out of rotini. The earlier review said to add more sauce, I added a half cup more, could have done a bit more, but I have to remember, this is a casserole. I doubled the reciped, and added 2 tablespoons of italian seasoning. My friends loved it so much, that they begged for the recipe. I'll do it again, but next time I want to add cheese on top for that nice crispy topping. Ooh, I started out with the Wasabi Secret Salad, which was a HUGE hit with this dish!

I did use spaghetti noodles instead of rotini. This dish tasted like it was missing something. If I was going to make it again I would use more sauce (2 1/2 cups) and less chicken (9ozs.) The bread crums did get crunchy like parm. breading does.

This was good! I used 16 oz of meat from a chicken breast that I cooked beforehand. Also, I added 2 tps of Italian spices, 2.5 cups of sauce, and 1 cup bread crumbs on top.

Wow amazing!!!! I did change a lot but this is a great base. I used normal noodles, real chicken breaded in bread crumbs and parm, cooked in a skillet, and added some parm to the bread crumb topping and WOW! thats some awesome flavor! Add a little more sauce about a half a cup and PERFECT!

Loved this recipe very easy. I made with 2 chicken breasts cut up and cooked in a bit of olive oil and seasoning. FAmily all loved it. Used a bit of extra sauce as suggested in the comments.

This was ok. It seemed very dry and sort of bland. I think more sauce/less noodles and some salt and pepper would help. With some modification I would make again.

This was good, especially for a large crowd. I followed the suggestions of the previous raters and doubled the sauce and that made worked great! I also added some spices (basil, oregano) and sliced fresh mozzarella on top with the bread crumbs. Everyone liked it.

This was a tasty casserole, although I made many modifications. Based on other reviews, I included a whole jar of Newman's marinara sauce. I also added 2/3 cup of diced raw red peppers (the crunch was really tasty in this dish), 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning, 1/2 cup of pureed carrots, 1 small can of V-8 vegetable juice (5.5 fluid ounces) and two tablespoons of wheat germ (to add extra vitamins and minerals) and I used 1 1/2 cups of steamed chicken rather than using canned chicken. I also added extra mozzarella cheese on top and then topped it with the bread crumbs. This was a big hit with my preschooler son!
