Make sure to repin this recipe

This week has been CRAZY – there are just so many things happening with the site recently and my family ( all good — but still crazy) that I knew I needed to make a VERY easy casserole – something my family just heat up on their own without my help

I have a very funny story about cheese paper and a sandwich I might tell y’all one day – the moral of that story is that I needed to make dinner as EASY as possible

I loved this recipe since it was frugal and very simple to make – I really hope you enjoy it too

It is full of fresh basil, tomato sauce, pasta, and TONS of cheese — 3 Cups of cheese in all !

I could live in a cheese shop – there is a sweet little on in Solvang, CA —- my family had to pry me out of there

This is everything you will need – I told you it was easy 🙂

I bought a live basil plant – because the one from last year bit the dust and it was cheaper and fresher to buy the plant than to buy the basil in the herb section at my store

You could make this recipe gluten free by using gluten free pasta

Feel free to add in more veggies if you would like – you could even add Alfredo sauce instead of tomato

This recipe makes enough for 6 VERY hungry people – it is easily can be made into leftovers ( which is what usually happens with my casseroles )

You can cook your chicken any way you want – all I did was sear on the flattop and finish off in the oven till it reached 180 degrees then I shredded it in the food processor – you can use leftover chicken too — whatever floats your boat
