This was a hit at our house and will become a regular for sure. Very easy to put together and quick for nights that are busy. I used 2 cans of cream of chick instead of the cream of mushroom, and it was great. Thanks for sharing!

This was really good and easy - I did use 12 oz of noodles, because that's the size bag I had and it worked fine. This is a recipe that you can substitute ingredients easily - example - use 2 cans of the same soup. It will be a regular in our house. Thanks for the recipe.
