Hearty Chicken Noodle Casserole

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by MarylandMomof3

This recipe came from a bag of Pennsylvania Dutch Homestyle Noodles many years ago. The pimiento absolutely makes this recipe, so don't leave it out. Make a trip to the store and get them, they're near the olives and pickles.

The only thing I did different was to use the cream of chicken with herbs. OK I added some mushrooms too. (sauted with the onions and peppers) BUT this is absolutely the best. Pimentos and green pepper make this dish! I've tried them all ...
