Cool Weather Comfort Food!
Now that cool weather is here, I am motivated to use my oven and crock pot to make heartier meals, which to me includes those popular Minnesota Hot Dishes!
Today I am sharing with you a new recipe (new to my family anyway) that I found on Facebook. It’s very easy to put together and only has a few ingredients. Best of all, Pa Lloyd said, “You can make this again!”
Chicken Alfredo Casserole"
2 cups dry pasta (I used plain old macaroni)
Cook according to directions on package, drain
1- 15 oz. jar Alfredo sauce
1 - 2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
1/2 cup chicken broth
5 oz Parmesan cheese, grated
2 cups (1 - 8 oz package) mozzarella cheese
(I used a package of 5 cheese Italian mix )
salt and pepper
Mix cooked pasta, Alfredo sauce, chicken, broth, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper together. Place in a greased 9x13 inch pan. Top with grated mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
Next time I make this, I will add a little parsley and a few mushrooms. I am thinking you could substitute shrimp for the chicken to make it a little fancier if you want. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
