  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta until flexible but not soft, about 5 minutes. Drain.
  3. Heat oil in a stovetop- and oven-safe casserole dish over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chicken strips until browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Add onion, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, olives, thyme, lemon zest, and pepper flakes. Cook and stir until the onions have begun to look translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in the half-cooked pasta.
  4. Sprinkle Pecorino Romano and Grana Padano over the pasta mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and the cheeses have melted and browned, about 15 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Delicious, healthy, beautiful, & truly Italian. I loved the use of DOP cheeses! I can't say enough good things about this dish. It's everything wonderful & delicioso.

Good but.., I added cream to make more of a sauce. Next time I will add more cream, and three times the number of cherry tomatoes. Spice is good. Might be tasty with shrimp too.

Nice medley of flavors. We all enjoyed, particularly liked the addition of olives!

I put it over rice. Otherwise, it was delicious! Add a shot of fish sauce before the end of cooking to bring the flavors out! -Chef Diane
