COOK TIME
3 Hr 30 Min

You're gonna like Bow Tie Pasta and Chicken Casserole not only because it's great tasting, but also because you don't have to precook the pasta. That's what we call hands-off cooking!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 2 cups chopped cooked rotisserie chicken
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can cream of chicken and mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 (8-ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages shredded Italian three-cheese blend
  • 16 ounces bow tie (farfalle) pasta, uncooked
  • 1 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
What To Do:
  1. Drain spinach well, pressing between paper towels to remove excess moisture. Stir together spinach, chicken, and next 7 ingredients in a large bowl; stir in 1 package of cheese blend.
     
  2. Arrange 1/2 of the uncooked noodles in a lightly greased 5-quart slow cooker. Spread 1/4 of the chicken mixture over noodles, and sprinkle with 2/3 cup cheese blend; repeat layers. Top with remaining noodles, chicken mixture, and cheese blend. Sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese and walnuts.
     
  3. Cover and cook on LOW setting 3-1/2 to 4 hours, or until noodles are done. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Think I will precook the noodles before putting in the crockpot and reduce the cooking time, or....bake it

I didn't have enough bow tie pasta, so used elbow macaroni. the first layer of noodles on the bottom completely burned. :( I think mixing it all together before putting in the crock pot is a good idea. This is also a HUGE batch, so next time I'll do it all on the stove - cooking the pasta - and only do a partial batch. This is a HUGE amount of cheese, too - wow! I subbed greek yogurt for sour cream. Tasted ok - ended up throwing half out because of the burnt noodles. :(

Too many ingredients.

I make this with frozen chicken breasts (2) cut up into small peces, cooked up in the fry pan with chopped onions & celery and my family loves it and its fast and easy

Did a rough estimate, and this dish would cost $19 for the ingredients (not counting spices or milk which you'd normally have on hand) in my area, and would cost $3.20 a person for the entree alone. Not an economical dish, especially if you're going to add salad and maybe garlic bread. (And I live in a 'reasonable' area of the country, price wise.) Sounds like a delicious dish, though.

I HAVE MADE THIS WITH SPINACH AND ALSO WITH BROCOLLI, WHEN I DIDN'T HAVE THE SPINACH ON HAND. BOTH TURNED OUT DELICIOUS!

Don't be lazy. Cook your own fresh chicken. Switch to low-fat cheeses and sour cream. I use Dreamfield pastas.Probably would reduce the amont of cheese used.Also can use health choice brands of soup.

This cost a fortune to make and afterr buying everything and trying it, I don't think it was worth the cost. I think it was just so, so.

Merciful heavens girls - just read the recipe! Gma Rose

I just saw this recipe and will make w/my next rot. chicken and am glad to see that Campbells made a chicken w/mushroom soup. But I bet here in Apollo Beach Florida I won't be able to find it, may just us 1/2 can of both and then freeze the rest for another time.

I'm still not clear on this one! Do you use three cans of undiluted soup or two? I'm sorry if this seems stupid but I just want to be sure before I make it. Thank you for any input!!

There is a Cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup combo by Campbells soup. Both in one can. So, 2 cans of soup - Hope that helps

Sorry to need more clarification---is that one can EACH of cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup as well as the one can of cream of celery? --because I have never seen canned cream of chicken-mushroom soup.

Actually Campbell's makes Creamy Chicken Mushroom and that's probably what this recipe calls for, as well as the celery. I buy it quite often for recipes.

actually how many cans of soup do I use?

Exactly what it says, 1 can cream of chicken and mushroom soup, undiluted and 1 can cream of celery soup, undiluted
