  • When you make meals just double it then use the leftovers to freeze using tin pans from the dollar store that way all you have to do is bake it

    1 (10 ¾ oz) can dream of mushroom soup
    1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
    dash salt & pepper
    3 ½ cups cooked chicken, cubed
    2 cups shredded sharp white Cheddar Cheese
    1 (12 oz) box angel hair pasta, cooked al dente
    3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
    2 Tablespoons butter, melted
    Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 13x9” baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
    Melt ¼ cup butter over medium-high heat in a skillet. Add onion, celery, green pepper(if using) and mushrooms; saute for 5-6 minutes or just until vegetables are tender.

  • continued:

    In a large bowl, combine onion mixture, broth, soups, tomatoes, sour cream, and seasoning. Stir in chicken and cheese. Add pasta, tossing gently to combine. Spoon mixture into prepared baking dish. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Sprinkle evenly over casserole. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve immediately.
    Makes 10-12 servings. I usually divide this in half and freeze part for later.
    This freezes well.
