Creamy Pasta & Veggie Casserole

Rose Mary Mogan


I created this recipe a few weeks ago with ingredients in the pantry. My husband is a big meat eater, and I love lots of veggies, so as a compromise, I grilled the chicken on the side and added lots of veggies to the pasta, & that made both of us happy.
