Leftover chicken and prepared Alfredo sauce are timesavers in assembling this casserole. A fresh green salad or a side of veggies rounds out this meal.
Updated Sep 20, 2016

Ingredients

  • 3 cups uncooked penne pasta (about 8 oz)
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped cooked bacon (about 5 slices)

Steps

    In large bowl, mix cooked pasta, chicken, cheese, thyme, Alfredo sauce and milk.
  • 3

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Sauce tends to thicken as casserole cools. Best to serve right away.
  • tip 2
    Don’t have penne pasta? Try rotini or bow-tie as a substitute.
