This was so good! I used a full pound of spaghetti and I sauteed the onion and celery in additional butter beforehand. I also used a mixture of sharp cheddar and mozzarella and instead of the cornflakes on top, I used some additional shredded cheddar. I didn't have any fresh mushrooms (I don't use canned) so I omitted the mushrooms. My whole family loved it, and by the end of the night, the entire casserole was gone. Thanks for this recipe; it's a keeper!

I have made this for years and like some of the different ingredients but I always use cheddar cheese which would give this much more flavor.

Like many others, I saut?ed the vegetables in butter first. The pasta mixture had great flavor with the mixture of cheeses and veggies. I may try butter- cracker crumbs instead of the corn flake crumbs next time as my family wasn't a big fan of the texture of the topping mixing in with the pasta.

This was great. Next time I'm saut?ing the onions and celery and slightly saut?ing the (fresh) mushroom. Also, I'm adding chopped water chestnuts. On the cornflakes, make sure that it is 1-1/2 Crushed cornflakes and I used Rotisserie Chicken.

This is really good, but I made some revisions. I saut?ed the onions and celery with fresh mushrooms in 2 Tbs of butter and cooked the chicken in 2 Tbs of butter. I omitted the 2 Tbs in the mixture since I used it for saut?ing. I substituted Monterey Jack cheese for the mozzarella for more flavor. With those changes, it was very tasty, and I'll be making it again.

I made this last night. Hubby liked it. The onion and celery did not get cooked through, so next time I will saut? first along with a little fresh garlic, instead of garlic powder. The spaghetti was a little too soft/ over cooked so next time will cook until al dente or possibly use a different pasta type. I cut the fat by using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and omitted the cornflakes.

Tasty. I made this for my daughter when she was home from college and gave her some to take back. She enjoyed it!!!

Outstanding! Freezes very well and reheats in microwave partially covered or in the oven covered. Cornflakes whole or crushed make an excellent topping.

Except for my lack of being prepared to make this, which made it take more time to prepare, this recipe was DE LISOUS! I made a huge casserole and my picky hubby ate 2 HUGE helpings. This is definitely a "keeper" recipe. I added 1 up of riccota cheese, and changed the cream of chicken for cream of celery... otherwise it was the same.
