4 Ingredient Chicken Pasta Casserole

When I was working and pregnant, I really didn’t have any time to cook or even prepare food. Instead I would make our dinner for the next day the night before so I wouldn’t have to scramble in the kitchen when I got home. I usually prepare this dish at night and place it in the fridge and then just pop it in the oven when it was time for dinner the next day.

I used chicken but that’s optional and the dish would still work very well without it. I usually use the frozen grilled chicken when making this ahead of time because I can just mix all the ingredients and place them in the casserole dish. When I’m making this dish on the weekends I grill or pan fry fresh chicken.

Now let’s talk about the cheese.. Let’s just say I “enjoy” cheese; I use lots and lots of cheese anytime I get a chance. It’s just so gooey and delicious!
