Alfredo Chicken Noodle Casserole

There are some weeks when I just don't take the time to plan out my menu like I should and I'm left scrounging around for something to prepare for dinner.  At times like that I take stock of everything in our freezer, fridge, and pantry and try to pull something together.

That's just what happened with this alfredo chicken noodle casserole!  It turned out so flavorful too and at only 8 points per serving it's not a bad Weight Watchers meal either.



Typically I prefer to use chicken tenderloins or breasts when I'm making a meal for us all but I had a can of chicken on hand and knew that would be much faster than trying to thaw out and cook up "real" chicken.  I think either would work well in this recipe though.

Ingredients: (serves 8)

16 ounce box cavatappi (or other pasta), cooked and drained
16 ounce bag frozen mixed vegetables
12.5 ounce can chunk white chicken, drained
2 cup fat free chicken broth
6 laughing cow creamy  swiss light cheese wedges
2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1 tsp. minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup shredded fat free mozzarella cheese


In a large bowl I combined the cavatappi, mixed vegetables, and chicken and set that aside while I prepared the sauce.



In a small saucepan I combined the chicken broth with the flour, laughing cow wedges, garlic, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning making sure to completely incorporate the cheese into the broth and cooking until the broth thickened up into a gravy-like consistency.



I poured my sauce mix over the pasta and mixed well.  Then using a 13x9 pan lightly sprayed with cooking spray, I spread everything out evenly.  I topped the pasta mixture with the parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.




Then I popped the whole thing in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes until the cheese was hot and bubbly and everything had been heated through.
