Chicken Ziti with Two Sauces

I re-pinned this from a friend of mine, and I loved the idea of combining marinara and Alfredo sauce. How could that not be good?

Well, it was absolutely delicious. Creamy, comforting, cheesy, and very filling. I added chicken to make it a little more hearty, so I decreased the amount of pasta from original recipe to balance it out and make sure it wasn't too dry. The original also called for a layer of cheese sprinkled on top, but I decided to skip this step.

Printable recipe

8 ounces ziti
1 15-ounce jar Alfredo sauce
1 24-ounce jar marinara sauce
2 cups cooked, chopped chicken
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook pasta according to directions and drain.  Mix the sauces together in a large bowl. Add the chicken and mozzarella and stir to combine. Add ziti and toss to coat. Pour into a 9x13 dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

  1. I love pasta dishes, especially when they're combined with creamy sauces, so I was very excited to try this one. The recipe is simple, and yet the flavor is rich and complex.

    If you like good Italian food but don't have the time to make it, add this recipe to your file!
