Italian Chicken Casserole

This is a recipe for a creamy baked chicken spaghetti recipe. I enjoy this recipe because it doesn't contain any "cream of" soups and it's very simple to make. The creamy red sauce is just delicious, I think. This recipe is from Paula Deen.

I cooked the chicken (1 large b/s breast) with the onions and garlic. I added salt, black pepper, and a dash of crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce. Since it called for 1/2 lb of pasta, I used just one can of diced tomatoes and half the mozzarella called for. As it was simmering, I thought.... 'Why bake it?' so I served it as a sauce over the spaghetti and it was enjoyed by us both. I will have to try baking this next time, but we were hungry, lol. Thanks for another great recipe Lainey, keep em comin! :)
