8 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
13 oz frozen breaded chicken tenders, cooked according to directions and cut into 1/2 inc pieces
2 cups pasta sauce
1/2 c shredded Parmeasan cheese
1 t basil and garlic seasoning blend

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Brush cut sides of bread with EVOO.  Place on baking sheets - cut side up.  Bake for 5 minutes.  Sprinkle 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese evenly over cut sides of each bread half.  Top evenly with the chicken.  Top each with mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese.  Sprinkle each evenly with seasoning blend.  Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.  Cut into slices and serve. 

Super Easy Weeknight Pasta

I came across this recipe YEARS ago.  Haven't made it in a while.

1 jar Paul Newman's Sackarooney Pasta Sauce
1 jar Classico Cheese Alfredo Sauce
2 pounds Italian Sausage (any spice level you like)
1/2 cup diced yellow onion
1 large can sliced mushrooms
1 pound Bowtie Pasta.

While pasta is cooking, saute sausage and onion until cooked through.  Drain.  Add pasta sauces and mushrooms.  Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer.  Drain pasta thoroughly and add sauce.  Serve with shredded fresh Parmesan.
