OK It takes a bit of work to prepare but when you taste it you will agree it was well worth it! If you already have tomato sauce at home that is one step less.

Followed the recipe as written and made six individual casseroles rather than one larger one. The only change I might make in the future is make a bit more of the creamy velvet sauce. Made for ZWT5.

I understand there is a "right" way to make this, and an "easy" way to make this. I have two small kids... I choose, "easy".

I made the veloute sauce. I sauted maybe 15 min. total. I added some Tyson Frozen Grilled Chicken. I then added the cream (or probably 2% milk is more accurate), tabasco, and green onions. I then stirred the pasta in.
I made the tomato sauce... sauted maybe 15 minutes (I made it in the same pot that I had just made the pasta in!).
I then sprayed the pan, added the pasta combo and the tomato combo, gave it a swirly stir, and topped with cheese. Delish (and only 1 pot, 1 pan, and the baking dish) and quick.
Thanks for the recipe!
