Gourmet, Nancy Style

Sandi has always been the gourmet chef in our family. I have a very limited ability to cook. My kids favorite dinner is my chicken, vegi, pasta casserole. It reminds me of mess hall grub. She has to call me everytime she wants to make it, so I am posting it here so she can just look it up.

Chicken, Vegi, Pasta Casserole

1 of those BIG ASS cans of cream of mushroom soup
1 small can of cream of celery soup
1 small cut up onion - Kroger has them already chopped in the frozen section,
no teary eyes or two days of smelly fingers
2 packages of the pre-washed, pre-sliced 'shrums :Rachel Ray 101
3 precooked diced chicken breasts
4 cup bag of finely shredded mozzarella cheese,
save time and knuckles, just open a bag.

Add the soups, chicken, 'shrums and what ever vegi's you want, or what ever is in the fridge that are on the brink of being pitched.

I use carrots, broccoli, zucchini, fresh green beans,cauliflower ... watery vegi's tend to mush like, celery, green pepper, asparagus .... and can vegi's are already mushy when you open them, so they don't work well.

Precook and add a box of your favorite pasta, elbow, bow tie, shells, etc.

I add spices to taste, like Mrs. Dash, pepper, garlic salt.
Mix well, put in huge lasagna pan, cover in finely shredded mozzarella cheese and then cover it all with foil. Bake at 350' for about 45 minutes, then remove foil and bake until cheese lightly browns, or to your liking.

Bon Appetit!

Dinner for two nights, then on the third night everyone is so sick of it, you simply throw the leftovers in the garbage disposal and poof, it's gone!

You could subsitute sausages and schnitzel for the chicken and wala, you'd have an instant "German" version :)
