Came up with this recipe one day from what I had on hand in my pantry and freezer. Became one of my family's favorites. Also freezes really well so sometimes i put 1/2 in the freezer in case of last minute dinner or to take to a friend or neighbor. Makes a 9x13 pan so it's great to take to a potluck.

How to Make Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook spaghetti noodles as directed for al dente. They will cook more in the sauce so if they are too soft they get mushy. Sometimes I add chicken stock to pasta water to add flavor to the spaghetti.

    While pasta cooks make sauce. Or if you're like me & hate dishes just wait until noodles are draining and use the same pan.
  2. In pan, melt butter and cook mushrooms if using fresh. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir together until soups and Alfredo sauce are combined.

    Mix pasta with sauce and pour into 9x13 dish (or put 1/2 in freezer for later use)
  3. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and bake covered for 1 hour at 325.

    Serve with crusty bread and a salad...yum yum!
