Creamy Caesar Chicken Pasta Bake

Another night and yet another meal thrown together on a whim because I thought the ingredients would go good together. Meals like that are such a favorite around our house.

This turned out every bit as good as I thought it would. It was creamy and rich, but not overpowering. The flavors blended together perfectly. The dressing lent a subtle flavor to the whole dish. Perfect!

  1. What a wonderfully simple recipe. It’s hard to beat quick, easy and delicious, especially when the finished dish looks so very good. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  2. I make something similar with chicken broth in place of ricotta and croutons on top. Yum!! Remember to make two and ‘feed the freezer’

  3. Decadent! And nice work on the photos. I like the idea of using frozen veggies-ideal for an end of the week meal before the market.

    Thanks so much for stopping in at Momtrends and sharing.

  4. This was good and makes a lot, but I thought it was a little too dry. I would add another cup of the dressing. Would make a very nice dish to take to a potluck; very pretty.
