Chicken Caesar Tetrazzini

I am participating in Kelly's show us your life blog hop! This week, it is recipes and I am sooo excited to read everyone's and hopefully get some new ideas! I am TIRED of making the same things over and over and over again!
We have lots of favorites at our house, but the one I make the most and get the most compliments on when taking to a potluck is chicken caesar tetrazzini! It is KILLER! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, boiled and shredded
1 box of your favorite pasta, cooked (i use angel hair, but spaghetti, linguini, etc. will be fine)
1 can chicken broth
1 bottle caesar dressing (i like creamy caesar the best and walmarts great value brand is cheap and perfect!)
1 can (4 oz) of mushrooms (optional: it is great with or without, so if you dont like it, dont put it in!)
1 cup of shredded colby jack cheese (or your favorite cheese)
3 table spoons of dry bread crumbs

In a large mixing bowl, combine shredded chicken, broth, dressing, cheese, and mushrooms. Stir. Add in cooked pasta . Stir all together. Pour this mixture into a 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle with a tad more cheese or parmesan if you like, and top with bread crumbs.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. This is also great to make up a head of time and freeze. Just combine all ingredients and put in fridge or freezer. Pull out and bake when ready! If frozen, it may take about 45 minutes to 1 hour to heat through.
I serve this with corn, green beans, and garlic texas toast! YUMMMMMMMMY!

So, hop on over to Kelly's Korner and check out all the other great recipes!

This has been one WILD weekend! I did not go to bed before 3 a.m. any night last week in preparation for Garrett's Star Wars extravaganza birthday party! We had a blast and all the late nights of sewing 23 jedi robes paid off when Garrett's eyes lit up the morning of his party! He was DELIGHTED!! We had a houseful of kids and parents and it was pure chaos, but it was the most fun birthday party we have had yet! (I like to kid that it was the last birthday party we will ever have, too! haha!) Garrett got a ton, and I do mean a TON of Star Wars stuff and he and Jacob have had a blast assembling it all! So, thanks to all who came and made his 6th birthday an event to remember! Here are some photos of our fun day!
