Cheddar Chicken and Pasta Bake
Frog Prince made me a total comfort food dish while I was down and out with the flu.
It was delicious.
Doesn't it look like a good comfort food?!
When we make it again, I'll add spinach (or broccoli) and mushrooms! Yum.
Cheddar Chicken and Pasta Bake - Adapted from Cynthia at What's For Dinner
1/2 lb. pasta, any
4-6 oz. extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
~1 chicken breast, shredded
Italian seasoning (use liberally)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 C milk
Prepare pasta according to package directions, until just about done.
Meanwhile, dice/shred the chicken, and shred the cheese.
Lightly grease an 8x8 inch glass baking dish. Then, pour in 1/3 of the pasta.
Top with 1/3 of the shredded/diced chicken.
Layer over the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, and then top with cheese.
ending with cheese on top :)
Then, drizzle 1/2 C milk over the top of the dish.
Cover with tinfoil, and bake at 350 for ~20 minutes.
Remove the tinfoil, and bake uncovered for an additional 5-10 minutes, until cheese is nicely melted.
