April posted this recipe on her blog yesterday (http://wineloverscookingdiary.blogspot.com/2007/12/alfredo-bake.html). It was so yummy, several of us made it for supper last night. My picture isn’t the best, so just trust me that it is delish! (I took it in the breakroom at work, so it has a yellow tint for some reason…)
8 oz pasta, cooked and drained
2 cups broccoli florets
1 cup mushrooms
1.5 cups chicken, cooked and shredded or diced
1 jar alfredo sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2 Tbls butter
– Preheat oven to 350 degrees-
Coat the bottom of the two small or one medium baking dish with a thin layer of alfredo sauce. In a medium bowl, mix the pasta, broccoli, mushrooms, chicken, garlic and alfredo sauce until combined.
Place mixture into baking dish and top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Cut the butter into small pieces and scatter on top of the cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is hot and bubbly
This recipe was sooo tasty! I think I’ll make a coupe of changes next time though.
- Stir the cheeses into the casserole
- Put a layer of bread crumbs on the top
- Use grilled chicken
- Probably some other things too, but I can’t think of any right now…
Also, we are trying to eat healthier, so I used reduced fat and no fat everything. Still tasted great!
