Chicken caesar salad pasta bake

March 10, 2015

This is definitely one of my favorite dinners to make, and its pretty simple as most of my recipes are. I know when we all hear the word pasta we think “oh no, I cant eat that” but you can if you keep it in moderation, meaning don’t go eating pasta everyday and expect to have any points left 😉 This pasta bake is loaded with chicken and cheese and is super filling! Sometimes I add a little aioli sauce if I’m in the mood for a garlicky dinner. Be sure to have cooked shredded chicken on hand, and cook your pasta first. The whole family should like this one 🙂
