Italian Chicken Pastina

This Pasta Dish is really Good , I got the recipe online and it was the first Chicken pasta dish that i found really nice , i add some spices to it and i skipped using the Bread Crumbs .


1 Cup Pastina pasta (or any small pasta) 
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Cup cubed chicken breast 
1 Clove garlic, minced
1 Can diced Flavored tomatoes with juice 
1 Cup shredded mozzarella
1/4 Cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4 Teaspoon  salt
1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 Teaspoon ground ginger 
1/4 Teaspoon of paprika
1/4 Cup cheese mix
1/4 Cup grated Parmesan
1 Tablespoon butter, plus more for buttering the baking dish


1- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2- Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until just tender, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Drain pasta into a large mixing bowl.

3- Meanwhile, put the olive oil in a medium saute pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for 3 minutes. Add the onions and garlic, stirring to combine, and cook until the onions are soft and the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes more. Put the chicken mixture into the bowl with the cooked pasta. Add the canned tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, parsley, salt, ginger, paprika and pepper. Stir to combine. Place the mixture in a buttered 8 by 8 by 2-inch baking dish. In a small bowl mix together the cheese mix and the Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle over the top of the pasta mixture. Dot the top with small bits of butter. Bake until the top is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
