This is one of my favorite recipes from my childhood. I have tweaked it just a bit from my Mamas version, but not much. It is just good ole comfort food that we all love and enjoy.

Oh, yum! This chicken noodle casserole is comfort food with a capital C! It's warm, creamy, and super hearty. Your family will love it. This casserole reminds us of a pot pie, just without the crust. We loved the pops of sweetness from corn, carrots, and peas. Macaroni soaks up the delicious cream of chicken and mushroom soups flavor. Bread crumbs on top give the crust a little crunch. Perfect dinner for a cold evening.
