Scalloped Chicken and Pasta

"This is one of those meals you make when time is tight and you are willing to take help from a box. I don't make this often but when I do my kids go crazy for it, and they get their veggies in too. It really is good and easy prep which to me is a big plus."

  1. Very good, did not put it in the oven because it is hot here today and didn't want to heat up the kitchen. After I added the sauce packet and chicken I simmered it for about 10 minutes. Thanks for an easy supper.
  2. This is good!! I was not sure how it was going to work by not draining the pasta, and it seemed a little runny after adding the milk, but after baking it turned out great! Even better the second day!! Thanks for sharing!
