Meal Idea: Chicken & Spinach Alfredo Casserole
Note: please forgive me for my lack of measurements, as I am usually stepping into the kitchen freestyle and just taste and test until I get it to where I want it, Yet as I grow this blog, I will make it a point to offer exact or approximate measurements for you! I promise!
Here is a super simple meal idea for those nights that you feel like whipping up something quick but tasty! If you are not a fan of chicken, then you can also try substituting the chicken with some baked shrimp seasoned the same way as you would the chicken below.
Ingredients I used:
Large Macaroni Noodles,cooked & salted
Fresh Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs
For The Alfredo Sauce:
1 Block of Cream Cheese
Salt to taste
Hot Water or Cream (I used water)
Dash of Sugar
For The Chicken Breast:
Directions: Simply combine your noodles, chopped spinach, cooked chicken and sauce into a casserole dish. Stir until well combined & sprinkle mozzarella on top. Top with fresh bread crumbs and drizzle with a bit of olive oil on top. bake until fresh bread crumbs are golden brown and crisp. Garnish with a fresh sprig of parsley. Serve with a nice red whine or iced tea!
