Enchilada Pasta Casserole Recipe

I love enchiladas – in every shape and form — I thought it would be fun to make it a casserole dish

I was in Los Angeles for 4 days last week and I knew that casseroles are the ticket for my husband to eat…. Eric tends to eat peanut butter sandwiches if I do not provide tons of food for him while I am gone

When I called Eric throughout my trip he kept bring up how much he was enjoying the casserole – win for me 🙂

I went for an egg noodle — you can use regular pasta — I have been finding that egg noddles hold up really well when a casserole is being eaten over the course of a few days

Again feel free to substitute with penne pasta
