  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup, NOT diluted
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (or 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes)
  • 1 (4.5 ounce) jar sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 12 ounces dry spaghetti, cooked just until al dente but still with a firm bite and drained (about 9 minutes)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste (I use ¼ teaspoon of salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper)
  • ½ cup grated cheddar cheese (or more, to taste)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl (or in the prepared dish), combine chicken, condensed soups, parsley, mushrooms, melted butter, cooked spaghetti, salt and pepper. Sprinkle grated cheese over top.
  3. Bake, uncovered, for about 15-20 minutes, until cheese is melted and casserole is hot and bubbly.
