  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and cook garlic for 1 minute. Whisk in flour until a paste forms. Pour in milk and cream, whisking continuously until smooth. Stir in 3/4 of the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and nutmeg. Add drained penne pasta and cooked chicken; stir to combine. Pour mixture into a casserole dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, 10 to 12 minutes.

Family liked it a lot. Even my pickiest eater went back for seconds. Definitely add salt and pepper and double up the sauce. We noticed it ended up a little drier then we like. The noodles soaked up a lot of the wonderful sauce. Plus I used frozen chicken breast that I cooked up. Read More

Very good and easy. It could use some salt and pepper but could also work well with a variety of add ins. Next time I'll experiment with things like bacon or tomatoes. Read More

Great, easy recipe! Took others’ advice and added salt and pepper, and substituted Italian seasoning and cayenne for the nutmeg. Also doubled the sauce which was a great idea. It was delicious and reminded me of Applebee’s 3 cheese chicken penne. Will add a bit more chicken next time, and might throw in some broccoli too! Read More
