    Rachel Potachel's Note:

    This is a (slightly) healthier version of one of my favorite comfort foods, which I adapted from my sister-in-law. You can always add more veggies to make this dish healthier...They'll be smothered with cheese so you won't even notice they're there, which is great for the kids! I recommend saving unused vegetable parts for a homemade stock. And, for easy clean up, use a plastic Crockpot liner.

      This turned out really well, and it was easy. I used already cooked chicken, and just mixed all together and baked in oven until bubbly. Made for PAC 2011.

      Great spaghetti! I cut the recipe in half and used the white meat from a rotisserie chicken. I also omitted the onion and celery and replaced them with 1 tsp each of onion and garlic powder. All in all, this was a quick and tasty dish. Thanks for sharing, Rachel! **Made for Spring PAC 2009**

      Great dinner, and makes a large amount. I had it for leftovers for about 3 days, but didn't get tired of it. Thanks for the crockpot liner advice, I always forget to use mine, and it sure did help.
