CHICKEN PARMESAN BAKED ZITI - How to make it in 45 minutes

          Chicken Parmesan Baked Ziti -- all you need are 6 simple ingredients for this comforting and delicious dish! |

Do you ever look at your life and wonder just how you came to be where you are today?
I had one of those moments in the kitchen this past week when I was making this chicken parmesan baked ziti.
Granted, any baked pasta dish always brings me back to my college days when my roommates and I basically lived on pasta bakes night after night after glorious night.  I can distinctly remember my 20-year-old self, standing over a boiling pot of water, carefully reading the instructions on the back of that $1 package of cheap ziti, setting the oven timer for however many minutes the package prescribed, not having a clue what “al dente” actually meant.  But whenever that timer went off, I would dutifully drain the pasta and toss it whatever jarred spaghetti sauce we had in the pantry and a bag of mozzarella shredded cheese, and pop it in the oven to bake.
Oh yes.  Back then, this is what I considered a fancy home-cooked meal.
Well, if we really felt like going fancy and had a few dollars to spare, my roommates and I might toss in some pepperoni or maybe some of the powdered Parmesan we kept in the fridge.  But most nights, it was simple pasta + sauce + cheese, and that was a big step up from what was being served in the cafeteria.  And once it came out of the oven, you’d better believe that friends and roommates appeared out of nowhere to come help with the leftovers.  :)

Fast forward a decade later, and I’m still making old-school pasta bakes, but I’ve learned a few things since.  I can’t remember the last time I needed to look at the instructions for how long to cook a bag of pasta, but I do look nowadays at the labels to see if there are clean ingredients inside.  I’m also not anxious about trying to replicate the exact recipe and instead feel confident tossing in whatever extra ingredients I might have on hand.  I also now know the value of generously salting your pasta water and the wonder of adding in some fresh basil.  But a decade later, the motivation behind cooking remains the same — I love to make food and share it with people I love.  Even if it’s super simple, and perhaps no longer quite what I would consider “fancy”.  Good food is good food, and it is meant to be shared.
So today I’m sharing with you a modern recipe mashup I made for some friends.  It’s all of the goodness of chicken parmesan, turned into a baked ziti dish.  I call it…(prepare yourself for the brilliance of the name)…
…Chicken Parmesan Baked Ziti.
           Chicken Parmesan Baked Ziti -- all you need are 6 simple ingredients for this comforting and delicious dish! |
The inspiration for this actually came from everyone’s reaction to this Chicken Alfredo Baked Ziti recipe that I posted last month.   Oh my goodness, you guys, this recipe skyrocketed to the top of this blog’s statistics and has stayed there ever since.  I forgot how much the world loves baked ziti!
In my mind, this will always be called a simple college-style “pasta bake”.  But when you use ziti, I guess the classic name is apropos.  ;)
       Chicken Parmesan Baked Ziti -- all you need are 6 simple ingredients for this comforting and delicious dish! |
So for a slightly different twist on the classic, I thought it would be fun to use one of my favorite Pomodoro Fresco tomato sauces from DeLallo and make a “chicken parmesan”-inspired version of baked ziti.  Many of you know that I love to make homemade marinara sauce, but when I’m pressed for time, I always turn to this delicious line of sauces from DeLallo.  By contrast to many sauces at the grocery store, DeLallo’s sauces are made from whole, all-natural ingredients.  And they actually taste fresh and goodnot processed and overly sweetened.  Just good.  On just about anything.  :)
I went with DeLallo’s Pomodoro Fresco Tomato Basil Sauce for this recipe, but any of their pasta sauces would be great (especially my other favorite, the Spicy Arrabiatta Sauce).
        Chicken Parmesan Baked Ziti 4
To make the baked ziti, I cooked up a batch of penne ziti and then tossed it with the sauce.  Then for the “chicken parmesan” twist, I added in some shredded cooked chicken, chopped fresh basil, and lots of grated Parmesan.
I know that traditional chicken parmesan requires you to bread and pan-fry the chicken.  But I thought the dish already had plenty of flavor and texture without adding the extra fat/calories.  And hey, true to the name, we’re including lots of chicken and lots of Parmesan.  So I’m sticking with it.
          Chicken Parmesan Baked Ziti 6
True to college dorm-room form, I did still add in quite a bit of mozzarella cheese, which makes everything ooey and gooey and wonderful.
So basically, you layer it all up and then pop your dish in the oven…
        Chicken Parmesan Baked Ziti -- all you need are 6 simple ingredients for this comforting and delicious dish! |
…and 20 minutes later, this deliciously cheesy dish is ready to go.  Just top it with some extra Parmesan and fresh basil, and serve!
           Chicken Parmesan Baked Ziti -- all you need are 6 simple ingredients for this comforting and delicious dish! |
It definitely feels wild that a decade has passed and I have somehow learned my way confidently around a kitchen in the time since.  And — yes — now am even a full-time food blogger.  (That job wasn’t even invented when I was back in college!)  But I love those dishes like these are still a part of my life, and are just as comforting today as they were ten years ago.  Because I definitely hope to still be making this one tens years form now, and ten years after that, and after that….

Type 1 diabetes symptoms and its major causes | You Know Health
Type 1 diabetes symptoms and its major causes | You Know Health


Diabetes is a prolonged situation in which a person suffers from very high amount of sugar (glucose) produced in blood of his body. A hormone called insulin produced by the pancreas controls the amount of glucose to be produced in the blood. This insulin helps sugar to enter cells to produce energy for our body.

There are two types of diabetes :
  1. Type 1 diabetes
  2. Type 2 diabetes

In type 1 diabetes pancreas is unable to produce insulin and in type 2 diabetes pancreas does not produce sufficient amount of insulin or cells does not react to insulin produced. In this article, we will focus only one type 1 diabetes symptoms and its major causes.

Type 1 diabetes is known as juvenile diabetes since it appears during childhood and also it can develop in adults. In spite of many research, this diabetes has no ultimate cure. The only best solution of this diabetes to prevent from further complications is controlling blood sugar level.


So let's discuss its symptoms so that you can identify someone has type 1 diabetes or not. Here are the major symptoms below :

  • Extreme hunger - in medical terms, it is called polyphagia. It happens when glucose is unable to enter the cells to produce energy.

  • Blurred vision - it happens due to hypoglycemia.

  • Unexpected weight loss - in this case, the body starts burning muscle and fats for energy.

  • Weakness and fatigue - when the body cells do not get enough sugar, weakness and fatigue happen naturally.

  • Frequent urination - this happens when kidney cannot absorb excess sugar and this sugar, pulls more water. In this way more urine is emitted from the body.

  • Frequent mood change - it is due to fluctuating glucose in the blood.
  • Cuts and healing - people with diabetes have inability or less immune system to recover from cuts.


Though exact causes are not known for this disease, researchers assume that it is the immune system of the body destroys the harmful bacteria and viruses along with cells of the pancreas which produce insulin. A study has published that the other possible reasons for this diabetes are external viruses and genetics.

So let's discuss the causes :


When the cells of the pancreas are destroyed by some factors, pancreas produces less insulin or nil. This amount of insulin is not sufficient to tackle the excess sugar and ultimately results in diabetes.


We know glucose is the main source of energy for the cells for muscle building and the sources of glucose are liver and food. When glucose level is low, liver takes the glucose and breaks it down to adjust glucose level in blood. If this glucose increases in excess in blood, then diabetes happens. It can be dangerous.


If someone has this type of disease, there may a risk of getting affected with it other siblings or members of  the family.


Sometimes certain gene plays a major role in developing this disease.

Some complications

This type of diabetes has some grave complications. It mainly affects kidneys, nerves, eyes, heart and blood vessels. These are as :

  • Kidney damage - Kidneys has millions of blood vessels that work actively in filtering waste from blood. When diabetes destroys these blood vessels of the kidney, the function of kidney hampers and this leads to kidney failure.

  • Eye problems - blindness can happen due to destruction of blood vessels of retina by diabetes. Also it causes glaucoma.

  • Heart problems - It can cause heart attack, chest pain, stroke and artery problems.

  • Skin-related - diabetes causes skin to more prone to fungal and bacterial infection.

  • Pregnancy - miscarriage, birth defects, and stillbirth are major problems happen during pregnancy of a diabetes affected woman.


Always consult with doctors as it can be life-threatening. I hope you get some knowledge about this type 1 diabetes. Thank you very mcuh.
