Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake

Creamy, cheesy packed chicken Alfredo pasta bake with three kinds of cheese and plenty to go around. Lots of gooey, stringy cheese in this fall casserole!

I don’t know about you, but I love a good Alfredo. It’s rich, it’s definitely not good for you, but it’s oh so yummy. And why shouldn’t we love it? It has all the goodness of butter, cream and Parmesan. Creamy. Cheesy. Yummy. So today we’re taking good old Alfredo sauce and making a chicken pasta bake. And we’ll add more cheese plus other stuff to make a great fall casserole.

So if you’re wanting cheese, I’ve got your back. This makes a HUGE serving to go around and it heats up well. It’ll make that wet squishy sound when you mix it all up, a sign of tons of creamy cheesy power. It’ll give you long strands of cheese when you dish a serving. The kind that you’ll want to run your finger along to break. And it’ll satisfy your cheese craving.

I took tons of stringy cheesy shots just to show you. Because proof of stringy cheese is absolutely necessary.

Mini Shepherd’s Pot Pies

Lately I’ve been playing with pre-made pie crusts. If you know me well enough, you know I can’t bake AT ALL. In fact, this whole blog name centers around this sad lack of talent of mine. But lately, I’ve been brave and tried out the wonder that is a pre-made pie crust. It’s cheap, it’s…

Baked Parmesan and Herb Crusted Chicken

I love fried chicken as much as the next girl. And super crispy skin is one of the BEST parts of fried chicken. Bad and bad, I know. Buuut you know you can kinda have the same thing without the frying. I won’t lie and say it’s as good as fried chicken but the breading on…

Big Steak Omelette

How do you spell omelette anyway? I’ve seen it that way and also as omelet. It confuses the heck out of me and makes me wonder if I’ve been doing it wrong this whole time. Omelette or omelet, this eggylicious creation is not mine, much as I’d like to take credit for it. No, this…
