Chicken Spinach Casserole

A very delicious casserole, made with a variety of cheeses, cooked chicken and pasta. This was a quick fix dinner made with chicken bought already cooked from the grocery store, packaged grated cheese, and pasta sauce mix.

What you need: 2 cups of Tortiglioni pasta - or any pasta of your choice,  2 cups diced cooked chicken,  2 handfuls of fresh spinach, 1 package of creamy garlic sauce mix, 2 cups of shredded cheese - mixture of Edam, Cheddar, Parmesan, Mozzarella, Provolone, and Fontina. (I actually bought a blend of the last 4 cheeses, already grated.)

What you do: bring a large pot of water to a boil to cook pasta. Meanwhile, cook pasta sauce according to directions. (I love sauces cooked in the microwave, but today did to on a burner, since my microwave has not yet moved to my new home.) If you like, replace 1/2 cup of milk with dry white wine. Add half of the cheese to the sauce to melt. While the sauce is simmering, dice the chicken, and add to the pasta sauce. Add cooked drained pasta to the sauce blend. Stir in the spinach.
Pour the mixture into a greased pan. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350*F for 30 minutes.

Serve with a glass of white wine.
