Casseroles have a unique way of turning us into huge fans. You can cook them without much work (all you need to do is add the ingredients in a baking tray) and they’re a nice way of mixing together different ingredients. This casserole has pasta, chicken, and two types of cheese, so it doesn't lack flavor or texture.
