Chicken and Spinach Pasta Bake

Original Post: Saving Money Living Life

- Prepare rigatoni according to pkg directions. 
- Spread oil on bottom of 11x17 in baking dish; add onion in a single layer.  Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or just until tender.  Transfer onion to large bowl, set aside.
- Drain chopped spinach well, pressing between paper towels. 
- Stir in rigatoni, spinach, chicken, & next 4 ingredients into onion in bowl. 
- Spoon mixture into dish & sprinkle evenly with shredded mozzarella cheese.  Bake covered at 375 for 30 minutes; uncover & bake 15 more minutes or until bubbly. 

Our Story:
We love to eat spinach, chicken and pasta so to get all 3 ingredients in one dish is awesome.  I followed the recipe completely this time (which is rare) except (OK, so not completely) I used cheddar cheese instead of mozza because that was what I had opened in the fridge.

We all loved the casserole but it took a little longer than I like my weekday suppers to take.  I would save this for a Friday night (when I get off work early) or a weekend for sure.
