Casseroles used to be pretty much all we ate until I quit my job to be a full-time stay-at-home mom. Now it doesn't happen nearly as often, especially in summer, but as far as generally easy, warm, and comforting foods go, you just can't beat a good casserole.
This wonderful casserole combines everything you need for a well-balanced meal with the terrific taste of Chicken Cordon Bleu. Great for guests or for a potluck as well, as kids and adults both seem to like the combination of flavors.
I got this recipe from Real Simple magazine. I am posting the recipe as published, but when I made it I used Turkey Sausage and Brown Rice. So good DH was checking the skillet for more after we were done!
A twist on the super easy recipe my closest girlfriend Jules35 and I use from the back of the AMERICAN BEAUTY PASTA (THE ONLY ONE THAT SHOWS A RECIPE THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO BOIL THE PASTA FIRST!! Sometimes we make it with sausage and mushrooms, sometimes veggie style-either way is great! Their make ahead tip is below as well! We have made this with a single can of sauce (large) but if you want it really saucy, you may want to adjust the recipe later to suit your tastes. ;) I topped with a 4 cheese blend that had cheddar in it for the picture. Up to you!!
A great use for leftover chicken or turkey. Uses no Cream of Whatever soup. A creamy wonderful one dish meal of chicken, rice 'n peas, topped off with a mixture of bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese and baked until golden brown.
Creamy garlic-alfredo sauce topped with spinach, grilled chicken, artichoke hearts, and sundried tomatoes, this scrumptious pizza was specially developed in honor of team KitchenExpeditions® and Zaar World Tour II. The recipe yields a 13" pizza or 8 generous slices and can be made vegetarian by simply omitting the grilled chicken. Enjoy!
This is so easy to put together just mix all ingredients then bake, it's a great recipe to use leftover chicken or even turkey, you can either top the casserole with crushed cornflakes or sprinkle shredded cheese on the last 5 minutes of baking. Prep time does not include cooking the rice of chicken.
