Hearty Chicken Noodle Casserole

Total Time

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 ...

Creamy, totally yummy comfort food, not waistline friendly. The men really enjoyed this tonight. I had a half of red pepper in the refrigerator, so I diced this and added it into Step 3. So I skipped using the pimentos. Thanks for a filling meal for the men. Made for PAC Spring 2012
