In the Kitchen with Jason: Chicken Asparagus Gratin

This recipe was delicious. I'm not kidding - it was so good that we ate the whole thing rather quickly. It doesn't hurt our fondness for this recipe that we have a huge bag of asparagus in our freezer we picked for free at a relative's house and we redeemed SwagBucks to get noodles for free.


Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 cups uncooked pasta
    • We recomend the cavatappi noodles, but you already knew that, didn't you?
  • 1 making of homemade cream of something soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked asparagus, chopped up into small pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, chopped up into small pieces
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Directions
  • Cook pasta according to packaged directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Mix together the pasta, all non-cheese ingredients, and 1/2 of the cheese in a bowl.
  • Put into a 9x13 baking dish and cook for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and stir.
  • Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  • Return to oven for 5 minutes.

I adore aspargus (and carbs! and cheese!) so this looks right up my alley! :) Thanks for the recipe!
