Chicken Spaghetti (Baked Spaghetti)

"I have searched for years for a chicken spaghetti recipe that my children liked; most were too runny. This is a casserole with a bit of heat from the Rotel tomatoes. Even my flavor/cooking challenged eldest daughter loves this."

    This is very good and very easy to make. I followed the recipe exaclty except that I added more cheese. It is a five star recipe, however, it is a bit to spicey for children (at least my children). I ended up having to open a can of spaghettios for my three and six year old. In the future I will make this with only one can of rotel and one can of diced tomatoes to help with the spice. Made for PAC Fall 2008. I just have to add to this review. I just had left overs for lunch. Man this taste even better the next day.

    This was delicious! It does have a kick from the rotel, however I used one mild and one original rotel to help lessen the heat. I also use deli rotisserie chicken. I will definately be making again.

I am a retired English professor and librarian. For forty years I ate on the run, working and rearing a very large family. Now I have time, and I am rediscovering cooking (and eating!). My husband and daughters like to cook as well, so we have to schedule kitchen time. I believe that exchanging recipes is a hope-filled, loving act. I can while away hours on recipezaar, reveling in its variety. I am struck again and again by the ingenuity of cooks, and by the bounty of our land, particularly in light of the stories told by my father of being so hungry in the Great Depression. Daddy, these recipes are for you. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
