This super simple and easy recipe is a great casserole for dinner, and you can alter it as you'd like. Use a four-cheese Alfredo sauce, add more cheese, add frozen sliced carrots, peas, or asparagus. Use your imagination!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 1 (16-ounce) package rigatoni pasta
  • 3 cups cooked diced chicken breast
  • 1 (16-ounce) jar Alfredo sauce
  • 1 (10-ounce) container refrigerated Alfredo sauce
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the pasta 2 minutes less than cooking time on package (the pasta will finish cooking in the casserole).

Meanwhile, in large saucepan, combine both containers of Alfredo sauce with the milk; heat until mixture begins to bubble. When pasta is almost cooked, add to sauce along with chicken and half of the Parmesan cheese.

Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Pour food into the dish and top with remaining Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover casserole and bake for 15-20 minutes longer or until casserole is bubbly and cheese melts and begins to brown.

You can vary this dish in many ways: add 1 cup sliced frozen carrots, thawed, 2 cups frozen baby peas, thawed, 1 (10-ounce) package frozen asparagus, thawed, 2 cups frozen green beans, thawed. Top the casserole with 1/3 cup bread crumbs mixed with 3 tablespoons melted butter; add that after the casserole is uncovered.

This was really good!, Guest Nancy

I made this for a family gathering and everyone really liked it! I will definitely make this again. I added carrots and some minced garlic. I used Itallion Shredded cheese in the mixture and on top with Itallion bread crumbs mixed with butter. I fixed a salad and made some garlic bread and had a meal. Very tasty and easy!
