baked chicken and pastini

1 cup pastina pasta (or any small pasta)
1/2 cup cubed chicken breast (1/2-inch cubes)
1/2 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice (i like italian flavored)
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
salt & pepper
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated parmesan

boil pasta about 5 minutes (in salted water). saute chicken in italian salad dressing (or just olive oil, but i like a little more flavor), add onion & garlic, cook til onion is transparent.
in large bowl combine everything except bread crumbs and parmesan. transfer to 8x8" baking dish, top with mixed bread crumbs and parmesan. bake about 30 minutes 400F.
serves about 3. easily doubled (9x13" or 2 qt casserole dish).
