Garlic Romano Chicken Noodle Casserole
  • 1 package extra-wide egg noodles
  • cooked chicken
  • 1 quart package of frozen green beans
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-3/4 cups cream
  • ¾ cup shredded Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • Snipped fresh thyme
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook egg noodles according to directions on package; don't over cook.
  2. Prepare chicken by removing it from the bones and chopping into bite size pieces. In a pot, combine the chicken, green beans, cream, Romano cheese, and garlic; heat thoroughly.
  3. Add the noodles to the chicken mixture and mix. Put in a greased oven-proof dish and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes until the mixture is bubbling.
The original recipe called for green peas which my family is not fond of. Broccoli would make a nice variation. I would also consider throwing in bits of nitrate-free bacon.
