Cheesy Chicken Alfredo Bake Pin It

It’s a rainy… drizzly day and I’m in the mood for some comfort food! Aren’t we all?

Well, this dish might as well be called comfort casserole… because that is what it is!

Mmmmmm….. Alfredo…..Cheese…. really? What’s not to love!?

The beauty is I can prep it to the point of putting it in the oven and then just put it in the fridge until the troops come home.

Or I could actually put it in the freezer for another day… oh…. have to try that too! GENIUS!

Then after everyone is done killing each other with their home work… I can just turn the oven on and BOOM! DINNER!

I found this Southern Living recipe on the My Recipes website.

I thought it sounded like something everyone would eat and I already had all he ingredients… that’s a no brainer!

Plus….I don’t want to leave the house today if I don’t have to… it’s a PJ’s ALL DAY kind-of-day! LOL!

I made a few changes since I didn’t have the ziti… but pasta is pasta in my book.

Ready for some cheesy yummy-ness??

Let’s get started…

Serve with a side of peas, green beans, or broccoli and maybe a slice of baguette too.

If you need to “hide” the veggies… you can just add them right to the casserole!

Sneaky… I love it!

If you haven’t noticed already by the pictures… we are the “GREAT VALUE” family! HAHAHA!

I buy store brands whenever possible and it saves us a TON of money each month!

Especially the 5 pound bags of frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I buy 4 or 5 at a time.

They are $10 each and I can thaw them and be ready for dinner in a SNAP!

HUGE TIME SAVER!!!!
