Step 3

Bake, covered, at 350° for 30 minutes; uncover and bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Creativity is key!!  A great basic recipe.  Lots of negative comments, but this is COOKING... not baking.  Get creative!!  I've made this recipe using it as a guideline and had amazing results and rave reviews.  I add crumpled bacon and sauté fresh mushrooms and garlic in butter.  Sometimes add peas for some color and flavor.  It's a great recipe to use as a guideline.  Add your flavor based on personal preference!

It was edible but not much more. I got lazy and liked using the soups in this recipe. The cream of chicken soup was over powering to me. We have not been trying to cut out processed foods so maybe our tastes were more sensitive to the canned taste.

I don`t think a "real Italian classic" would have all those canned soups and JARRED MUSHROOMS. yuck Look for something less processed!

I made this exactly according to the recipe and it turned out great! My family loved it. I actually added the entire can of chicken broth because the pasta really soaked it up. It makes a lot, so I gave one pan to my mother and they loved it. If your family are cheese lovers, this is the meal for them! Very easy and quick for busy mother's like myself.

Couldn't agree more with Laura. This recipe should be on the menu at McDonalds! Talk about processed home cooking; this a perfect example.
