We loved this. I used ground turkey and Mike didn't even notice, had he, he would have complained but intead, he raved. I also used fresh mushrooms, added 2 cloves of garlic and used an Italian seasoning blend rather than just the basil. I topped with Italian bread crumbs and left off the parm cheese. Also, rather than using milk I used sour cream for the mac and cheese. I just like it better for casseroles. Wont change a thing next time, and there will be many next times. Thanks for a great recipe. Goes nicely with the classic 'wedge' salad.
I found this better than the macaroni one pot type meal that I usually make. The baking helps to meld the flavors. I used ground turkey instead of chicken.
So delicious! My boyfriend and I could not get enough :) did not change anything about this recipe.
A good easy weeknight dinner. We added some bell peppers and enjoyed this. Also we didn't have time to bake it, just ate it from the stovetop.
This was quite good. I used 2 cloves fresh garlic and mushrooms plus ground turkey. I also used some Italian herb seasoning and Himalayan sea salt as it would have been bland.
Seriously yummy recipe with a few tweaks for an adult crowd. I added a finely chopped 1/2 of jalapeno pepper, a sprinkle of cayenne, fresh ground pepper and sea salt, sautéed fresh mushrooms with the onion and topped it with crushed homemade buttery croutons tossed with fresh grated parmesan. TIP: Don't skimp on the basil, it's an integral part of the flavoring of the recipe (my opinion of course). Thanks for posting this recipe!
Thank you for this recipe. It is a keeper.
I gave this 4 stars. My 3 yrs & 4 yrs old newphews loved this casserole. I really liked it to. This was my first time using ground chicken and it was so easy to make. I used canola oil in place of the oil olive oil. I used a regular cooking onion in place of the sweet onion. I didn't have fresh basil on hand so I used a little dried basil leaves. I mixed the breadcrumbs & parmesan cheese together. Next time I make this I will mix the cheese in the casserole and top it with breadcrumbs. We will have this again!

Went together easy and baked up nicely. Next time I'll add garlic and maybe a little more spice. Served with a green salad and hot bread.
