Cheesy Chicken & Spinach Pasta Bake

Submitted by: BIG_SCOTS_LASS

Introduction

This is a variation on Spinach Chicken Bake submitted by Silly_Me. The original was too bland and not filling enough for me, so I added pasta, and changed some of the ingredients to liven it up a bit.

    I made the original recipe. I omitted the mayo and added mushrooms. It was delicious. I, too, keep Mrs. Dash on hand and seasoned the chicken prior to cooking it. It gave it a little bite to the flavor. - 7/9/09

    I'm not sure why you've commented on my recipe if you didn't make it. How does this help other users decide to try it? You should leave your comment on the recipe you did make instead.

    I'm not sure why you've commented on my recipe if you didn't follow it. How does this help others decide if they want to try it? I'd prefer to read comments from people who have followed the recipe I posted exactly and get their opinion on it.
