Alfredo Bake

A few days ago, a friend asked me if I knew of any good, family friendly recipes that I could share.

I immediatly thought of the Alfredo Bake that my Mom makes.

We love this dinner.

I love it cause it's simple, quick, and I can put it together in the morning and just throw it in the oven when we are ready to eat.

Am I the only one that spends the morning feeling like I have nothing to do and dinner time running around like a chicken with my head cut off?

Do chickens really run around with their heads cut off?


Hmm, better stick to the recipe!

The ingredients are simple:

Two cooked chicken breasts, two jars of alfredo sauce (or you could whip up your own!), a box of spiral noodles, veggie of choice (we usually use green beans or broccoli), and some italian cheese.


Boil up some water and cook your noodles for about two minutes less then the package directions.


While that's boiling go ahead and chop up your veggies and your chicken. You could totally use frozen veggies too.


Drain your noodles and put back in pan.


Add the chicken, veggies, sauce, and some cheese. I add garlic too.

We love us some garlic.


It should be a little saucy. It is going to bake and if there isn't enough sauce it will be too dry after it cooks.


All of this can be done up to 24 hours ahead of time and stored in the fridge until you're ready to cook it up.


Then pour it all into a baking dish and cook at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.

That's it!

I serve it up with garlic bread and a little salad to round it out, but it is filling enough to eat all by itself.

Plus it makes a ton so you can have lunch all set for the next day too!
