Cheap and easy chicken pasta bake

    45 min

    Five ingredients come together for a cheap, filling and easy dish. Use another type of pasta instead of spaghetti - whatever you have to hand will work. You can use any cheese spread you like, and even cream cheese will make a nice dish. Season to taste with salt and pepper depending on how flavourful your cheese spread is.

    very easy and quick and my fussy children loved it. I will sneak in some sweet corn and chopped peppers next time  -  27 Sep 2012


    I added mushroom, carrots, and peas in addition to the recipe, and it tasted and smelled wonderful!  -  16 Sep 2015


    Delicious and easy. I did make a few additions so that I might sneak in a few veggies. I sauteed some green pepper, onion, celery, mushrooms, and garlic in the drippings from the chicken. Then added the diced chicken to the veggies and sauteed them together for about 2 minutes then added a little salt and pepper to the chicken and veggies. Once I was tossing all those ingredients together, I also added some diced pimentos. Tasted very flavorful and cheezy-my son 2 1/2 year old loved it-especially the noodles.  -  22 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
