I am so excited to share this Easy Cheesy Chicken Pasta Casserole Recipe! I don't know about you but life seems a bit hectic and crazy right now. I am always trying to make dinner as quickly as I possibly can.
Chicken Pasta Casserole
We are still trying to soak up as many warm nights outside as we possibly can before the weather turns ugly. As much as I love sweaters and chai tea weather I also love spending time outside by the fireplace.
This chicken pasta casserole is delish and perfect for any night of the week. It doesn't take a ton of time to make and the family will love it. You can easily add in more veggies if you want! Broccoli would taste amazing in this.
I know it may be a surprise that this isn't a crockpot recipe but I figured why not change it up a bit and share a recipe you can bake in the oven.
