Chicken pasta bake with Parmesan crumb topping

    1 hour

    A great comfort dish that can be tweaked according to your family's tastes. Creamy condensed soup makes for an easy sauce, while you can use any sort of frozen veg you wish - garden peas, spinach, or a mix. Leftover chicken could also be used. The crumbly Parmesan topping is delicious and sets this pasta bake apart!

    I didn't have everything stated in the recipe. No Parmesan so used Cheddar, should have made the breadcrumbs finer and I didnt have enough condensed soup for the amount I was making so it was a bit on the dry side. Everyone ate and enjoyed it, so that was good  -  13 Jul 2015


    This is the best baked c;hicken recipe I found.  -  20 Sep 2014


    this recipe is worth 5 stars because it can be modified to taste well. it is too dry on its own, and i recommend adding another can of soup or additional milk/sour cream. i also changed the vegetables - i included brocolli, peas, and mushrooms; and spices - italian seasoning with garlic/onion. this is also the perfect recipe to use with whole wheat pasta - as you can't taste the pasta. very easy to modify.  -  24 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
