Chicken Parmesan Casserole

A simple but delicious weeknight casserole the whole family will like!  I am a big believer that food doesn't have to be fancy to taste good.

Chicken Parmesan Casserole

2 heaping cups rotini pasta
2 boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed
salt and pepper to taste
1 (24oz) jar favorite tomato pasta sauce
2 cups mozzarella, shredded
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 Tbl unsalted butter
1/4 tsp garlic salt (or to taste)

Boil pasta according to package directions
In a large pan cook chicken with salt and pepper until no longer pink
Add jar of tomato pasta sauce
In an 8x8 baking dish layer half the noodles with half the sauce/chicken and half the cheese
Then pour in remaining pasta, remaining sauce/chicken, and cheese
In a small bowl melt butter in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds and slightly cool
Add bread crumbs into zipper plastic bag
Add garlic salt to crumbs
Poor in butter and zip the bag shut
Shake and massage the bag until crumbs are coated
Spread crumbs evenly over cheese on top
Bake at 350°F for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and crumbs start to brown
