Italian bake casserole, there’s never any leftovers in our house when this is served, that’s why I am forced to double this recipe. Hope you and yours enjoy. It’s a great way to use up any leftover chicken.
Serves: 4 Prep time 20 Cook time 45 min. Total time 1 hour 5 min.
•1 cup cooked diced chicken •6 cooked Italian sausage links, cut in ¼-inch slices •1 jar (26 oz.) spaghetti sauce (you can use more if you like a saucy casserole) •½ cup shredded mozzarella or parmesan cheese •8 oz. penne pasta (or any shape you have on hand), cooked al dente •¼ cup onion, chopped •1 cup large diced bell peppers–I mixed red and green •2 cups shredded pizza cheese (see Notes) •2 tbsp. shredded Asiago cheese
Notes: You can also use Italian Blend shredded cheese (sold in the dairy case). If you can’t find this, then mozzarella or cheddar will do.
