I don’t even know if this qualifies as half-ass, it’s so easy.
– Trader Joe’s frozen chicken tenders
– Trader Joe’s marinara sauce (in a can)
– shredded mozzarella, Italian herbs, parm, salt and pepper
Bake the chicken tenders at 350 for 20 minutes, then add mozzarella, herbs, and parm (though it probably would have been good to add the herbs right off the bat. Duh.) for 5 more minutes. Make pasta. Heat up sauce. Assemble. Top with parm. Focus on presentation to make up for dead-easy preparation. Eat. Drink. Enjoy a lazy dinner.
