I’ve been stopping by The Pioneer Woman’s website from time to time. I’m sure you’re familiar with her. If you aren’t, then I suspect you’ve been living (under a rock?) I’m drawn to her recipes, stories, photographs, and photographing tips. Without question, she is a very talented and creative person. I know she doesn’t need a small time blogger like myself promoting her, she does well enough all on her own. But…..
Yesterday, she posted a recipe for a Creamy Chicken Spaghetti Casserole. The moment I saw the ingredients and her mouth-watering photo’s I knew I was going to be making it for dinner.
I did make a few adaptations to the recipe. I used a lighter margarine, not butter, used parmesan cheese from the jar, and added 2 small garlic cloves of crushed garlic to the mushrooms as they were browning. I also bought a store roasted chicken to save time, I used vermicelli instead of thin spaghetti, and I used skim milk instead of whole. The biggest change I made was cutting the amount of spaghetti (vermicelli) the recipe called for in half, and increasing the chicken by 1 extra cup. I think if I had used more vermicelli the casserole wouldn’t have been creamy enough. Remember I used light margarine, and skim milk.
This casserole is a keeper! It’s so delicious that I’m adding it to my tried-and true recipes. Talk about comfort food – oh man!

I wouldn’t mind a bowl full of that delicious looking casserole right now! It looks like pure comfort food.
It is one of the best casserole recipes I’ve made in a long time. You have to be a black olive and mushroom fan though. I know a few people who aren’t.
So good! I love her website, and I’m often tempted to make her recipes the same day I seem them. I’m so glad that you enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing this deliciousness tonight. I hope you have a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend.
What a great casserole. You can never have to many go to meals like this. 🙂
That looks like something my family would devour in moments!
My mouth is watering!
this looks delicious
If you girls make this casserole I’d love to know how you like it. Of course I saved you a serving Sandra 🙂
Wow your picture says it all! Talk about up close, personal and tempting. It’s a keeper for sure. Time for me to visit Pioneer Woman again. You did save a serving for me, right?
I’m drooling looking at that bite! Thank you for sharing the recipe and your modifications. I’ve never made a spaghetti casserole before, never not ever. This sounds good I’d try this! Maybe this could be one of my go-to dinners…
