Chicken Penne Pasta W/ Mini Onion Walnut Muffins

Here's a dish that's pretty quick and really tasty, didn't have any leftovers!! Everyone in my family enjoyed it.

Chicken Penne Pasta:

1 1/2 lbs of boneless chicken breast
1/2 C Onion
1/2 C Green Bell Pepper
1/2 C Red Bell Pepper
2 Tsp Garlic
2 C Uncooked Penne Pasta
1 Can (14 OZ) Rotel Tomato
2 C Mozzarella Cheese

Cook chicken until completely done, set aside. In a large pan saute the onion and peppers in some olive oil until tender, add garlic and rotel tomato.

Cook pasta for about 8-11 minutes (or according to your package directions)

Combine chicken, sauteed veggies and pasta all in a large pan, transfer half this mixture into a greased 2-qt baking dish, sprinkle half of the cheese, and repeat layer.

Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, uncover and bake 10-15 minutes longer.
