Cooking with Katherine: Cheesy Chicken & Spaghetti
Well folks I think I promised an easy recipe for you this week. My daughter and son’s wife love to make this casserole all the time. One day I was invited to go eat at my daughter-in-law’s house to eat chicken and spaghetti. I was raised on a tomato sauce chicken and spaghetti, so I was quiet surprised to see this casserole spaghetti, which had no tomatoes what so ever in it.
Now some cheesy spaghetti recipes do not call for Ro-Tel tomatoes. This recipe is my daughter’s and it does have Ro-Tel and I was really impressed by it. Both recipes were wonderful, so with or without Ro-Tel’s you can decide for yourself. Either way I think you will be impressed too, and it is fairly easy on top of that. Happy Eating and be sure to call me when you are ready for us to cook your next Casserole or cater your Special event.
