If there was one thing (besides pizza) that I could eat every single day of my life pasta would be it. Seriously. I could live off of it. Oh, it's that good. I'm also probably on a living off of it kind of kick right now, as last night the child and I had ziti with butter for dinner and the night before we had something (I forget what - must have been chicken-related) with spaghetti and butter and parmesan cheese for dinner, as well. I probably ate mostly spaghetti. I'm good like that.
With the amount of pasta I
Anyway, keeping in theme with my Lazy Mom Recipes, I am going the simple and Lazy Mom route to share MY spoon today.
Lazy Mom's Chicken Tortellini Casserole
* 10 oz grilled chicken strips (I made strips out of grilled chicken)
* 9 oz alfredo sauce (but today's recipe is using Vodka sauce, as we had no alfredo in the house)
* 1 bag frozen tortellini (or fresh, whatever works - and I use cheese, but you can switch it up if you want to)
* splash of breadcrumbs
Chicken is usually pre-cooked if you buy the frozen or the packaged strips. Otherwise I'd cook them up a bit. Cook your pasta as directed. Combine with sauce of choice (the alfredo is really yum, and I'm not even a huge alfredo fan, so I hope the vodka sauce is just as delish!), top with breadcrumbs and bake at 350* for about 25 mins or so. Depends on how well cooked your chicken and pasta already are. Mine were good to go so I cooked for like 20-ish minutes.
You can also choose to top it with some mozzarella cheese, or, if you're truly a Lazy Mom, do like I did and shred some Polly-O string cheese to cover the top a bit. It all looks the same when it melts, right?
I promise that even though it looks a little bit off, it was delicious. It's gone, anyway, and I made it on Wednesday night. Yum. So that's that! Go Share a Spoon of your own if you have a pasta dish you'd recommend. And enjoy!
