Freezer Friendly - CrockPot Penne with Rosemary Chicken

The pasta will cook al dente as it bakes in the sauce, so there’s no need to boil the pasta first. If you prefer a softer noodle, bake the dish a bit longer. Let this dish cool before serving to allow the sauce to thicken. (adapted from DD Cookbook)
