Baked Penne with Chicken and Tomatoes

This is a great great recipe for the fall and winter, it was so gooey and cheesy! Yum. The recipe is from Cinnamon Girl and very very slightly adapted.

6 tbps butter
salt and pepper
1 pound penne pasta
1 tsp olive oil
2 chicken breast (cooked and shredded)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 garlic cloves (minced)
6 cups whole milk
1 can diced tomatoes (drained well)
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese (shredded)
1 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)

Heat oven to 400. Boil pasta. In a deep pan, melt butter. Add flour and garlic, whisk for 1 minute. Continue to whisk and slowly add the milk, 1 cup at a time. Bring to a simmer and whisk often. Add tomatoes and cook for 1 minute. Stir in mozzarella and immediately remove from heat. Add 1/2 cup parmesan, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp of pepper. Add chicken and pasta to the mixture. Pour into a grease 9x13 baking dish. Top with remaining parmesan cheese and bake for 25 minutes.
