Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded chicken cooked
  • 1/2 pound cut spaghetti cooked
  • 1 cup mushrooms sliced or quartered
  • 1 cup fresh spinach chopped
  • 15 ounce jar garlic Alfredo sauce
  • 3 ounces sundried tomatoes cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs

Instructions

  • Cook spaghetti and chicken (if necessary). Drain and return spaghetti to pot.
  • Mix in chicken, mushrooms, spinach, Alfredo sauce and tomatoes.
  • Pour into a greased 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.
  • Mix bread crumbs and parmesan cheese together and sprinkle evenly over casserole.
  • Bake at 350°F for 20 - 30 minutes until heated through.

Notes

  • Slice sun-dried tomatoes into small pieces to help spread the delicious flavors throughout more bites
  • Slice or quarter mushrooms
  • Can prepare and shred chicken especially for this recipe, but we like to use leftover rotisserie chicken or even a can of shredded chicken to save time
  • If garlic alfredo sauce isn't available add minced garlic or fresh garlic to regular alfredo sauce
  • We like cut spaghetti because it's easier for many of us, including our young kids to eat, but any type of pasta can be used
  • If bread crumb topping starts to brown cover with foil to prevent burning, but allow casserole to heat through
  • Chicken casserole reheats well, but may need extra sauce added to maximize flavor
  • Casserole can be frozen in an airtight container for up to three months and reheated - I typically add more sauce or cheese when reheating a frozen chicken and spaghetti casserole to help keep it moist
