An Easy Weeknight Garlic Chicken Parmesan made even easier with the use of Mezzetta flavored pasta sauce!

I don’t know where you are in the world, but here in St. Louis we have actually experienced some cooler days and nights.

There has even been some sweater weather in the evenings.

This is my favorite time of year, but it’s also the busiest for us.

School is in full swing and our nights only have a limited amount of time to fit in all the activities including dinner.

I like to spend time with my family each night eating dinner together and talking.

Who couldn’t use a few easy recipe ideas or even a way to host a perfect pasta night?

With Mezzetta it’s easy with the delicious flavors in your choice of Mezzetta Napa Valley Homemade pasta sauces. 

Easy Weeknight Garlic Chicken Parmesan

I love enlisting my children’s help in the kitchen and when creating pasta with an already made sauce, it’s super easy to do.

But aside from that, making a lovely Italian meal of Garlic Chicken Parmesan on a weeknight becomes so simple with Mezzetta and also with my kids help!

It’s a wonderful meal with limited ingredients but a wonderful, full flavored bold taste. My kids love Garlic Chicken Parmesan, and I love that using Mezzetta Napa Valley Bistro flavors helps liven up dinner and make it a quick meal to prepare on a busy weeknight!
