Today’s chicken pasta bake with a creamy white sauce and kale is another early recipe of mine that needed to be revamped. With new photos and a more polished recipe, I’m excited to put this satisfying casserole in the spotlight today.
This chicken pasta casserole was a hit with my husband and I. It’s a lot like mac and cheese with chicken and kale added in. Of course my boys turned their noses up at it since it was loaded with a leafy green. They just ate plain pasta, chicken, and steamed broccoli AGAIN for their vegetable. Hopefully one of these days they’ll branch out a bit more.
This recipe is tasty leftover and would also be welcome at any potluck. I love that the veggies are baked right in, so you don’t need to make a side dish. I hope this chicken casserole recipe is a favorite at your house too!
