Chicken Parmesan Baked Pasta

Chicken Parmesan Baked Pasta
1- 28 ounce can whole peeled tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
12 ounces pasta
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped

Add the tomatoes to a food processor and pulse until the tomatoes are coarsely chopped, about 10 pulses. In a large oven safe skillet, over medium heat add olive oil. When the oil is hot add the garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes, cook until just fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the chopped tomatoes, water, 1 cup chicken broth and the pasta to the skillet, stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a good simmer and then cover the pan and continue to simmer until the pasta is tender, about 16-18 minutes. Stir the pasta frequently as it cooks.

Preheat oven to 475°F while the pasta is cooking.

Once the pasta is tender, remove the cover and stir in 3/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese, all of the black pepper and chicken. If the mixture seems dry add as much of the remaining 1/2 cup chicken broth as you desire. Sprinkle the top evenly with the mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese. Transfer skillet to oven and bake for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and bubbles around the edges. Garnish with basil.
