Food Storage Friday - Baked Chicken & Spaghetti

This recipe is really easy and tastes great, too! It doesn't get much better than that.

Here are the ingredients:
Pasta, canned tomatoes, onion, canned chicken, pepper, and some white sugar. Like I said last week, you can substitute dried onion for the real onion I have here.

First, boil some water and cook the pasta according to the package directions.

Saute the onion

Then add the canned tomatoes.....

And the sugar.

Let that simmer for a while

Then add the chicken

And add the pasta. I added it straight from the boiling water.

Mix it all up

And add it to a casserole dish. Bake for 20 minutes and it's done!

Like last week's dish, this meal is very versatile. You can add cheese to the top, garlic with the onions, parsley for some color, or a dash of red pepper flakes for some spice. As we ate it for dinner, I also thought that some frozen (or canned) peas would add a nice flavor and color.

Here's the full recipe:

10 oz cooked & drained pasta
1 onion, chopped
1 can tomatoes
2 Tbsp sugar
1 can chicken

Set oven to 375 degrees. Cook pasta according to the package directions. While it's cooking, saute the onion. Once it's done, add the tomatoes and sugar. Let that simmer for a few minutes. Add the pasta and chicken, and stir gently. Pour into a greased baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese (optional). Bake at 375 degree for 20 minutes.
