    Pellerin's Note:

    Creamy chicken and noodles...crunchy herbed topping, and J-U-S-T enough veggies to qualify as "healthy." Inspired by a recipe found on FoodNetwork, I've played with it enough to make it a new standard in our house. Freezes beautifully! (Note: Can easily use 2-3 of Costco's Kirkland brand canned chicken breast, or pick up a roasted chicken at your local mega-mart!)

      This dish is a labor of love. It has lots of steps but well worth it. I don't think the crust on top is necessary and would probably taste better without it. Hubby gave this two thumbs up.
