White Chicken Pasta

This dish is great using any kind of pasta, I make a lasagna with these ingredients as well.

Recipe


Ingredients 
  • approx 2C of chopped chicken breast, either raw and you cook with the recipe or pre-cooked
  • a bag of large noodles like rigatoni
  • 1 container of ricotta
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/2C flour
  • 1C chicken stock
  • 2C milk
  • 2C shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1t garlic powder

Step 1:



Get started on the stove your noodles, chicken and sauce.  I just cook the chicken breast with a bit salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Sauce:
On medium heat melt the butter, when melted add the flour and garlic powder, mix and let it bubble for a minute, then add the chicken stock and milk.  Let this heat on medium while stiring, when thickened reduce heat to medium low and some fresh ground pepper and slowly add approx 1 cup of your cheese, when this is melted and combined take the sauce off the heat.

Step 2:



When noodles, chicken and sauce are complete build you dish in a casserole or lasanga pan.  I start with a bit of sauce on the bottom then layer noodles, ricotta cheese, chicken, and sauce.  If I have it I often add cooked spinach here as well.  Make sure your top layer includes lots of sauce and a final layer of cheese.

Step 3:



Bake at 350 for approx. 20-30 minutes, serve hot



Family Thoughts: 



We love it!  Kid friendly, makes great leftovers, and as I said, exchange the pasta noodles for lasagna and you have another fantastic dish!
