Zesty Tomato Chicken Pasta Casserole

Yet another throw-things-together casserole recipe! :)

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2.5 cups pasta of choice (I used medium shells)
  • 2 cups shredded fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced (or color of choice ;)
  • 1/2 cup frozen diced onions
  • 1 can tomato soup, no water added
  • 2 cups sharp shredded cheese
  • garlic powder, to taste
  • zesty seasoning powder, to taste
  • 3/4 cup of chicken "broth" (you'll make this while cooking)
  1. Boil chicken in a pot of water for 45 minutes.
  2. Remove chicken, leaving water in the pot, and shred/dice.
  3. Remove 3/4 cup water for use later (this is your "broth").
  4. Put pasta in boiling water left over from chicken and cook a few minutes. Pasta should still be firm since you will later be cooking it some more. Make sure to not overcook!
  5. In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients: diced chicken, diced bell pepper, shredded spinach, diced onions, can of soup, pasta, cheese, seasonings and "broth".
  6. Put into a large baking dish and bake on 350 for 30 minutes.
