♥ Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake

























Another one of my favorite dishes to make. I love my pasta in a rich creamy alfredo sauce. This sauce is wonderful and I use it with different types of pasta. I might add shrimp and linguini or Italian sausage and penne pasta. I like to change it up from time to time for a whole new look and taste. This time I used chicken and rotini pasta. It is delish! Don't forget to click on the photo for drool mode!


Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake

1 lb spiral pasta (cooked according to package directions and drained)
2 cups of diced chicken breasts (I use Tyson Grilled chicken strips or I use a rotisserie chicken)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese for top
2-3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese for top
Alfredo Sauce

½ cup butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups heavy cream
¼ teaspoon white pepper
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
¾ cup mozzarella cheese for sauce

Boil pasta as directed and drain well. Return to pot but off the heat just to absorb excess liquid.

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, cream, white pepper and bring the mixture to a simmer. Stir often. Add parmesan cheese and simmer the sauce for 8-10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and become smooth. Add the mozzarella cheese and cook until smooth.

Combine chicken with the cooked pasta, and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese. Stir in alfredo sauce. Pour the mixture into a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Mix together the 1/2 cup of parmesan and the 2-3 cups of mozzarella cheese. Cover top of casserole with the cheese mix and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until cheese has melted and starting to brown.
