Facebook fans of my blog, Chef in Training, inspired me to make this creamy pasta casserole out of ingredients I had on hand. Success! I took the dish for another flavorful spin and added a bit of smoky bacon and toasted bread crumbs. —Nikki Barton, Providence, Utah

This is a great recipe. Chicken Cordon Bleu is one of my favorite ways to have chicken. This recipe brings all those great flavors to a simple, easy weeknight pasta dinner. It is super easy to make this head and freeze and serve later. This is also almost more amazing as leftovers. Just a great recipe that I'll be keeping around for a long while.

Although I am a vegetarian, I did taste the sauce and it was good after I added some Mrs. Lawry's No salt. I felt it needed an extra something. Rest of family really liked this recipe. Instead of onion powder, I sauted onions as my family likes onion and I don't keep onion powder on my shelf. I'd rather use the real thing. I also mixed the dry bread crumbs with melted butter. I will be making this again.
