This casserole will make even the most fervent weeknight warrior happy to come home to a weekday dinner. There are no complicated techniques or special ingredients. In fact, for an end result that boasts all the flavor of chicken parmesan, there’s no breading or frying the chicken.
You don't even have to pre-boil the pasta! If you’re looking to spruce up the end result, a nice green salad or fresh herb garnish would go a long way towards making this carb-creation look balanced on a plate. Plus, it will mean more leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
