new made-up recipe

last night i wanted to eat something particular (cheesy, broccoli, noodley...), but couldn't find the right recipe for it, so i just made one up! and it was a success! so, here are my best guesses at amounts for the recipe - you all should try it! it was delicious! *but not diet by any means!* (too much cheese) put this in a microwave safe bowl with a little water, cover, and cook until soft, about 3 minutes: 1 box of chopped broccoli 1/2 chopped onion mix all of this in a large bowl: the broccoli and onions from above 2/3 bag of egg noodles (cooked) 1 can cream of mushroom soup (i got the healthy request kind) 1 can cream of chicken soup (i got the healthy request kind) 2 packages of oven roasted chicken... the deli kind like for salads (in the lunch meat section, already cooked chicken strips)... i chopped these up really fine 2 cups grated cheese (cheddar, right out of the bag) a small can of mushroom pieces (i chopped these up too for texture purposes) roasted red pepper out of a jar (chopped) 1/2 to 1 cup chicken broth (or sink water or milk or pasta water) - just enough to make it all creamy i put all that in a 9x13 casserole dish and topped with more cheddar cheese, sprinkled with breadcrumbs, then crushed a few corn flakes on top of that. everything in it is done, so i put it in the oven on 350 just until the cheese melted and it was all hot. YUM! (by the way, the picture is not what i made, i didn't have nearly that many breadcrumbs on top!) and, i think it'd be good without chicken, but you simply MUST put the roasted red pepper in it, it just makes the casserole!


  1. That actually sounds pretty yummy!

    Here is another topping idea that goes well with just about any casserole. (actually 2 ideas)

    One: mix up lots of crushed saltines with some melted butter and sprinkle on top (really good with tuna casserole!)

    Two: finely crush cheese puffs and sprinkle on top of casserole (mac n cheese is a good one here)

  2. That does sound good. I agree; roasted red pepper really adds something to casseroles.

    I buy a deli chicken and take all the meat off of it. I usually freeze more than half of it for another meal.

    This type of chicken would be great for your recipe; it's also wonderful on home made pizzas.
