Deconstructed Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Pasta **

This was just kind of "meh."  It wasn't bad by any means, but it just wasn't anything special.  I was pretty disappointed.  To me, it really wasn't reminiscent of chicken parmesan at all, but that is probably because there wasn't flavoring from any breading.  I don't see myself making it again.

1 onion, sweet, sliced
3 garlic cloves, smashed
3 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
1 tbsp basil, dried
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 (24-oz) jars pasta sauce
16 oz rigatoni pasta
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup parsley, freshly chopped

Place onion and smashed garlic in slow cooker.
Season chicken with salt and pepper and place on top of onions. Pour sauce over chicken. Sprinkle dried basil on to the sauce. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
When slow cooker time is up, remove chicken, shred and place back into sauce. Stir in Parmesan cheese.
Prepare pasta according to package instructions. Drain pasta and stir into slow cooker.
Sprinkle Mozzarella cheese over the top of pasta and replace cover just until cheese melts, about 10 minutes.
Garnish with parsley just before serving.
