It's one of those recipes that's been shared on facebook. For starters, it's pasta! Add monterey jack cheese and bacon? It's for sure to be a good one. I made this for supper last night and it is a keeper recipe. I think the only thing I might change is add a little bit of milk to the soup to make the dish a bit creamier.
I'll share the recipe here but if you'd like, you can go to my facebook page where I shared the original...
Crazy Good Casserole
4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breast
6 strips bacon
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
1 pound dry spiral pasta
1 tablespoon garlic powder
Salt & pepper to taste
Cook and crumble bacon. While bacon is cooking, cut chicken into bite size pieces. Set bacon aside. In same pan as bacon was cooked, cook chicken. Add garlic, salt & pepper. While the chicken cooks, prepare the pasta.
Spray 9"x 13" pan with nonstick spray. Preheat oven to 400°.
Drain pasta and return to pot. Add chicken, soup and only 1 cup of cheese. Mix well. Pour into prepared dish. Top with crumbled bacon and remaining cup of cheese.
Bake 20 minutes just til cheese is melted and beginning to brown on top.
