This recipe came from a card that was handed out with my weekly Weight Watchers materials. It's comfort food for 6 points per serving. Note: substitute turkey for chicken if desired.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large casserole, combine all ingredients, mixing well.
- Bake,covered, 35-45 minutes.
- Remove cover; bake 10-15 minutes longer.
- Serve immediately.
After reading the other reviews, I decided to experiment. Some of the reviews said the casserole had a "soup" consistseny. Preheat oven at 350 degrees and oil a rectangle casserole dish. I used 2 cups of whole wheat macaroni (cooked), 2 cups of chicken breast (cooked), 2 cans of Healthy Request Mushroom soup (undiluted), skim milk (about 1 can measured from the soup can), 1.5 cups of shredded parmesan cheese, grilled onions, and lots of spices. First, I grilled the onions and chicken in separate pans with extra-virgin olive oil. I added garlic powder and italian seasoning. I also cooked the noodles. In a bowl, I mixed the soup, milk, cheese, and other ingredients once they are finished cooking on the stove top. I also added more garlic powder, italian seasoning, and rosemary. I put the mixture in the dish and baked it for 30 mins, covered. Last, I cooked the casserole for 15 mins uncovered. It was good, healthy, and had the right consistency. I will be making this again!
Just a note. According to WW new Points this is 5 pts for 1/8th of the casserole. :)
I love to cook, and was sad when I started Weight Watchers because I assumed that a lot of the fun would go out of cooking. I am so glad that I was wrong about that though, and I thought this dish was DELICIOUS. Excellent comfort food. I used 3 chicken breasts, one can of ff cream of chicken, one can of ff cream of mushroom, and added mushrooms, onions and peas. It was perfect. Thanks Budgie! :)
