Easy Chicken Spaghetti
Spaghetti is such a classic, simple, and cheap, dinner recipe. I mom used to make spaghetti a lot! It was on the menu at least once a week if not twice. We always tried it in different ways and this Chicken Spaghetti quickly became a favorite of mine! This spaghetti has cream cheese, shredded, cheese, diced tomatoes and chicken. I baked it and served with salad and steamed veggies.
Time to get cooking this yummy Chicken Spaghetti! Creamy and filled with cheese you are sure to love it! Since I was not using cream of chicken soup for this recipe I wanted to use something else that would thicken it up so I used cream cheese. Once the spaghetti was cooked I drained it and added the cream cheese to melt and coat the noodles. I made a creamy sauce with chicken broth, Rotel, half and half, and chicken. Add this to your cream cheese coated spaghetti, top with cheese, and bake!
