Welcome to my new site!  I designed and built it myself with a little help from a very tech-savvy friends.  I am very proud to call this place home and I really to you enjoy the new layout! 

I got the idea for this casserole from the very inspiring Pinterest.  I happened to see a recipe that had chicken and pasta that was topped with bacon, I didn’t click on the image to get the details I just made a mental note of what some of the ingredients were so I could build my own recipe.  I love to create new recipes from just seeing a picture without knowing the actual recipe.  This casserole was the result and let me tell you it was a huge hit!  The sauce was so full of flavor I will be making this casserole time and time again.
