"Pretty good casserole! I poached 3 chicken breasts in water with 2 bullion cubes. Removed & chopped the chicken and then dropped the spaghetti into still boiling broth for about 5 minutes, drained (reserving 2 1/2 c liquid). dumped the mushroom soup into broth, layered chicken, noodles & sauteed veggies (added 2 cloves garlic while sauteing) dumped broth mixture on. Covered & baked at 350 for about 30 minutes put provolone slices on top and broiled a few minutes to brown. It was delicious! I was worried it would be soupy but the noodles finished cooking and soaked up the broth. Great recipe I'll try again, next time with some broccoli!"

"This recipe was a hit at my house. I made a huge dish and they cleaned it up. The only change I made was sauting fresh mushrooms with the onions carrots and celery.

"This makes a DELICIOUS dish. I added more carrots and celery and chopped a can of mushroom pieces/stems and sauted all in olive oil. I cubed 3 baked chicken breasts and used whole wheat spaghetti.  This recipe is a "keeper"."
