Recipe Thursday - Chicken Alfredo & Rice Casserole

Each Thursday, I am going to be sharing a recipe with you!I will pick a recipe from my collection and I will be sharing where I got the recipe and everything. But I am going to include my own photo of the finished food, the original recipe, and try and share the things I changed when I made it!

I would love your help too! If you have a great recipe, especially week-night dinner recipes (but I would love all kinds of recipes) - please share it with me, by emailing me at I will try it out and feature it on my blog! If you have cooking tips or anything else in regards to cooking and food - please email me!

This week's Recipe:
This is a tasty casserole and I love that you can really make this one yours. I didn't have any peppers, so I didn't add that and my husband doesn't like nuts in his food, so I didn't add that. I did add some mixed vegetables, and I would love to try this with red and green peppers. If you have followed me for awhile - you know my family likes extra sauce, so I added more sauce. All-in-all - an easy and yummy dinner!
