All you need to make this delicious Cheesy Chicken Casserole are Pasta shells, chicken breast pieces, cheese, green pepper and canned tomato. In my personal opinion, the green pepper adds TONS of flavor to the dish so don’t omit it. If you would like to go bold, add some jalapeño peppers for a nice kick.
To start, brown the chicken in the skillet and cook the pasta with abundant boiling water. Then mix all the ingredients together and bake with cheese on top. Next time I’ll add some parmesan cheese on top to get a crunchy texture.
What I LOVE about pasta casseroles is that the past on top is crunchy while the pasta at the bottom is soft. Hope you can make this Chicken Casserole at home. If you do, please tag me on Instagram @livingsweetmoments and/or use the hashtag #LivingSweet – I promise to Repost it.
