This Chicken Parmesan Casserole gives you the taste of a favorite Italian dish in an easy pasta bake recipe!
Warm, satisfying dinners like this chicken parmesan casserole are my favorite way to end the day. I love to be safe and sound at home in the evenings and would almost always take that over going out! This weekend our friends offered to watch our boys for a couple hours so we could have some kid-free time. At first it was going to be for an early dinner, but then we realized that didn’t really want to go to dinner at 6:00 and then come home and do the bustle of the bedtime routine. We are used to eating pretty late, and once I’ve had dinner I’m ready to relax!
We moved the time a little earlier and went to the mall instead. We wandered around and didn’t buy anything, and then we ended our afternoon date with a quick Trader Joe’s run. Yes, I’m serious! We are party animals. Call me crazy, but I would rather go wander around a mall kid free and then come home and relax with an easy dinner like a tasty casserole. This dish is the perfect way to get the flavor of classic chicken parmesan with a lot less effort.
This pseudo chicken parm makes a lot of food. It could easily feed a family of six, but if you have a smaller family then it makes great leftovers. My boys love getting warm leftover pasta in their lunches since they are sort of burned out on sandwiches, and I love having a an easy lunch to heat and eat too.
The next time you want an easy family dinner or a fun (at home) date-night meal, you won’t be disappointed with this warm, cheesy casserole.
