    Perfect for potluck suppers. It can be made ahead,frozen, thawed and then baked. A favorite with children, too. My best friend gave me this recipe, and my family has been eating it forever. Very yummy!

      Made mine spicy by adding jalapeno cheddar cheese in place of the sharp cheddar cheese and added 1/2 shredded mozzarella cheese. And cheated by using store bought already cooked chicken. I used penne. And instead of layering I mixed it all together. Very quick and easy and delish!

      A nice, easy way to make a tetrazzini dish. I cut the amount of chicken to 2 cups and found that to be plenty for me. The second time I made it, I also cut the pasta to 7 oz., which made a moister dish that I liked better. I upped the cheese to 1 cup and also used a trick my mother taught me: When you're using sharp cheddar, add 1/4 tsp. dry mustard per cup of cheese. You don't taste the mustard per se, but it peps up the taste of the cheese. Like Rita L, I just mixed everything up together and it came out fine. I don't have cornflakes, so I used bread crumbs from 5 slices of very stale bread, and mixed them with 5 Tbsp. of margarine before putting them on the casserole. I used a 9-in. square pan with the lowered amount of pasta, and it took about 50-55 min.
