Cheap and easy chicken pasta bake

About this recipe: 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.
