Cream Cheese Chicken Casserole
I can't wait for the weekend to kick off. My little man Jack has his first hockey tournament and the entire family is going. We usually don't take all three kids many places together.... between Wells nap schedule and Savannah's love from running wild, we tend to have one parent stay home or find a sitter. However, this weekend we are braving it and all going ;)
If you don't follow me on IG, I posted this meal yesterday on there. I had some cream cheese I wanted to test out so I searched Pinterest for a good recipe. I landed on this casserole and went for it. I did alter it...a lot, so ill post the recipe that I did. The kids love to help in the kitchen so they did some small tasks during the process. It didn't look "pretty" when I took it out of the oven so I didn't have much hope [because you know how it looks is how it tastes...].
The entire family LOVED it! It isn't the healthiest meal in the world but it does have spinach and tomatoes in it! We will add this to the go-to meal list in our house.
8 OZ Uncooked Rigatoni [We used whole grain noodles but will use Bonza pasta next time]
10 OZ Spinach
3 Cups of Cooked Chicken
1 Can of Italian-Styled Diced Tomatoes [ I used fresh because it was all we had]
1 - 8 OZ Container of Chive-and-Onion Cream Cheese
2 Cups of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
-Preheat the oven to 350
-Cook pasta & drain
-Chop spinach and combine in a bowl with the pasta, cooked chicken, tomatoes, cream cheese, and 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese.
-Pour the mixture into your baking dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
-Bake for 35-45 minutes :)
Have a fabulous weekend!!
