Italian Herb Baked Chicken and Pasta

Unlike most baked pasta recipes, this one starts with uncooked pasta so it's super convenient. With the added water and canned diced tomatoes, the pasta cooks in the oven along with the chicken and cheese for an easy one-dish meal.

Serves: Makes 8 servings.

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Place pasta, chicken and 1 cup of the cheese in 13x9-inch baking dish.

  • Mix water, Seasoning Mix and tomatoes until well blended. Pour over pasta and chicken. Stir to coat well, making sure most of the pasta is covered with sauce. Cover with foil.

  • Bake 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove foil and stir. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese. Bake, uncovered, 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes. (Sauce will continue to thicken upon standing.)

    Why can't we find this seasoning packet anymore? It is by far my favorite 'go to' in my home.

    The flavors in this are incredible. Would make a great tomato based soup. Sad I can no longer find this at my local stores, would be nice if McCormick would give us the measurements of each spice used so we can assemble it on our own.

    Made this the other night and tasted "OK", flavor was a little flat for my family but will certainly make again with a little tinkering with the ingredients, maybe some garlic and onion powder and a bit more of table salt. Will keep you updated.

    After having wonderful results with McCormick mixed spices, I tried this one. Sorry McCormick but this is a very 'dull' recipe.
