Chicken and Spinach Rigatoni Casserole

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by heather in Ont,

Quick, easy and delicious. The recipe calls for 4 garlic cloves, but I only added 2 and should have added 3-4 cloves. I also added more parmesan because of preference. This is a hit with the kids. My friend Kathy sent me this recipe and now I am indebted to her forever.

This pasta was amazing. I followed the recipe rather closely but added more cheese at the end as a personal preference. I think I even enjoyed it more as leftovers. Will make again.
