This dish is perfect for families. Very simple to make plus it is FULL of veggies 😉

You can even cut up some cooked chicken breast and add it to the pasta before you bake it. Make sure to taste the mixture before baking – it may be a little bland but a little extra seasoning can help that 😉

Just think of this recipe as “comfort in a dish”.
