Creamy Chicken Pasta

My casserole-hating son liked it!!

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Bake: 35 minutse
Servings: 8

Ingredients
  • canola oil cooking spray

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked & cubed

  • 2 teaspoons olive or vegetable oil

  • 1/2 medium onion, diced

  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2 bag frozen cut spinach (not the kind that's frozen into a brick)

  • 1 pound extra-wide egg noodles or other similarly sized/shaped pasta

  • 1 can mushroom pieces and stems

  • 2 eggs

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • 8 oz Swiss cheese, grated

  • 8 oz sour cream

  • 1/4-1/2 cup grated Parmesan


Directions

If your chicken breasts aren't cooked yet, you can simmer them in water for about 30-40 minutes or wrap them in foil and bake them at 350°F for 45 minutes. (The latter will make them more tender.) This is not included in the times posted at the beginning of the recipe.

Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 9x13" casserole dish with cooking spray.

Put water on to boil and cook noodles according to package directions. Stir frozen spinach into cooking water just before draining noodles.

While water is coming to a boil, heat oil in skillet and sauté onion, red pepper, and garlic until onions are translucent. Stir together diced chicken, onion-pepper mixture, noodles & spinach, and mushrooms.

In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, heavy cream, salt and pepper. Stir in grated Swiss and sour cream. Mix well with the chicken-noodle-veggie mixture.

Spread in prepared casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake 30 minutes.

Heat broiler. Remove foil, sprinkle top with Parmesan, and place under broiler until Parmesan is bubbly.
