How to Make It

Step 1

Cook spaghetti according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain well. Rinse under cold running water; drain well, and set aside.

Step 2

Melt the margarine in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and next 3 ingredients, and sauté 4 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour, poultry seasoning, and pepper; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk, and cook 1 1/2 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, stirring until cheese melts. Add chicken, ham, 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, and next 3 ingredients; stir well.

Step 3

Combine the spaghetti and chicken mixture in a large bowl; stir well. Spoon mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Step 4

Combine remaining 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese and paprika, and stir well. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese mixture, remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, and almonds in alternating diagonal rows across top of casserole. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes or until bubbly.

Step 5

Make-Ahead Tips: You can assemble the casserole up to 4 hours ahead of time, omitting the cheese-and-almond topping; cover and chill. Add topping just before baking.

My favorite go to casserole

I have been making this casserole for years! Everyone who has tried it loves it! I even made this dish X 2 for the firemen who watch over my area, along with a salad and garlic bread! They raved over it and threatened to hide the second one from the next shift! It is that good!

Good homestyle casserole. 2 of my 3 kids loved it - I think the sherry was the problem so I will leave it out next time. I would also put more meat in it. I will definitely make this again.
