Cooktop Cove: Make this awesome baked chicken noodle casserole with items in your pantry already
By Emily Monaco
A classic casserole recipe knows how to make the most of pantry staples like cream of chicken soup and frozen veggies. To get the recipe below on the table, you might not even need to go to the supermarket.
This recipe contains quite a large proportion of frozen peas and carrots, which is a great way to get your kids to eat more veggies at dinner. When they're mixed into the creamy, cheesy sauce with the richly flavored egg noodles, there's no saying no — and it's even better if you serve it with grated Parmesan cheese on the side.
