TIP: When using gluten-free pasta, after you cook and drain, RINSE THE PASTA OFF.
Yes, I’m slightly yelling at you about this tip. Because it is important. Gluten-free pasta is delicious but you’ve got to learn how to work with it. Rinsing the pasta off will get rid of the extra starch and prevent the pasta from grouping together into a gloopy mass.
Yep. Gloopy is not a word I’ve ever used here before. But in this context its perfect.
If you’d like to take an extra step, you can use our homemade spaghetti sauce in this dish instead of store bought.
I’ve made this Chicken Parmesan Pasta Casserole many ways.
- Roasted the chicken, homemade marinara sauce.
- Store bought roasted chicken, homemade marinara sauce
- The normal lately? Store bought roasted chicken and store bought marinara sauce.
It was a progression into lazier cooking. Is that even possible?? I’m pretty lazy already.
Whatever cook level you may be at in your life at this point, this Chicken Parmesan Pasta Casserole is divine and will earn a place on the weeknight dinner rotation just like it has for so many others.
