CHICKEN SPAGHETTI CASSEROLE

CHICKEN SPAGHETTI CASSEROLE: FOR SOME REASON OR OTHER, THIS SEEMS TO BE A FAVORITE OF THE MEN IN MY FAMILY. YUM!

We loved this. I made it with 1 lb of spag..so increased the soup to 2 cans, de-boned a rotisserie chicken (approx 4 cups) and doubled the veggies only increased the cheese by 1/2 cup and it was so good and creamy!

Good recipe! I used canned chicken and since I didn’t have cheddar cheese on hand, I used a pizza blend shredded cheese. Yummy!

We enjoyed this. It is a good recipe to use up left-over chicken. Instead of pimentos, I used sliced green olives with pimentos.

I loved this recipe because it was different from other casseroles. I added a can of Rotel tomatoes and had to add chicken broth to make this come together well. It was delicious and I will definitely make it again.
