When I found this recipe it was one of those nights where I turned to the fridge and the pantry to help me decide what was going to be for dinner. We had chicken breasts, but we've done a LOT of grilling this summer, so I wanted to switch it up from the norm.
In addition to the chicken, I had some fresh spinach that I had no plans for and a bunch of spaghetti from when I stocked up on a recent buy one, get one sale. And of course I always have cheese. I'm a cheeseoholic.
All of the ingredients that I had on hand screamed casserole to me, so I turned to good ol' Google and entered in chicken and spinach pasta casserole and voilà! I found the perfect recipe. I tweaked it a bit to suit our tastes and the what I had in the pantry...a little more garlic, more tomato, and spaghetti for the pasta selection. It came out so good and we loved it!
This recipe was pretty similar to my Spinach & Artichoke Chicken Casserole that uses marinated artichoke hearts and egg noodles. Both are totally yummy and are great variations of a creamy chicken casserole.
This one's going to be perfect to make this fall. Total comfort food!
