Sometimes the BEST things happen by accident! Just like this creamy pesto pasta bake with chicken, spinach and roasted red peppers.
I raided my cabinets recently to sort through and organize some of of the ingredients I had on hand. I had just bought chicken because it was on sale and ended up baking this casserole with some of the ingredients I came across. SCORE!
This is everything for dinner in ONE DISH: chicken, cheese, spinach and roasted red peppers surrounded by creamy pesto pasta.
You can make life even easier by using precooked chicken like a store-bought rotisserie chicken or recycle your leftover chicken! Word.
I used prepared jarred pesto but I have an awesome homemade basil pesto recipe if you want to make your own.
It’s also just as good (if not better) reheated so the leftovers are perfect for lunch the next day at work.
Make it to your liking and add more or less of what you like… I think artichokes would be great in it also. I added some extra Italian blend shredded cheese as a topping. This is SO EASY to make! Enjoy!Print
