Cashew Chicken Casserole

Recipe by Kristen in Chicago

This is unique and fast because you do not have to cook the macaroni first! Prep time does not include overnight refrigeration. If you do not have time, just omit the overnight refigeration. I have done that in the past with no problems.

What a change from the casseroles that I do make, yum! I did omit the water chestnuts, other than that followed recipe exactly. Thanks for a great recipe!
