Chicken & Portobello Pasta Bake



 

This recipe is Chicken and Portobello Pasta Bake. It is a great weeknight dish to prepare for your family. It also can be made ahead of time and put in the oven when ready to eat. I discovered this recipe out of an old magazine, and my family loved it. They said to add it to the "keeper" list.


If you like pasta, mushrooms, and cheese, you will love this dish.


One tip is to boil the noodles in chicken broth to have more depth of flavor. This dish can also be made with leftover turkey from holiday meals.


Serve this dish with a salad and garlic bread for a complete meal your family will thank you for!
