Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

What you need:
2 teaspoons  butter
2  teaspoons all purpose flour
2 1/2 cups milk
salt & pepper  to taste 
2 cups or  1 bag shredded Italian blend cheese
1 1/2 boxes Campanelle pasta 
1 pound chicken, cooked and chopped
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
2 cloves garlic, minced 
chopped deli ham (thin sliced)
frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well 
Topping:
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs 
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese 
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Start preparing your pasta. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large saucepan on medium heat and add the flour. Stir until combined and bubbly, at least one minute. Slowly add in the milk, whisking in. Add salt & pepper to taste. Add Italian cheeses and stir until cheese is melted and well-combined.

Heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a sauté pan and add the garlic. Stir for one minute until fragrant. Add the cooked chopped chicken and salt and pepper to taste. Sauté for a few minutes. Add pasta, chicken, sliced ham, and drained spinach to the cheese mixture. Stir until well-combined and place in a greased 2-quart casserole dish. 

Stir together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Sprinkle the mixture on top of the pasta dish and bake uncovered for 15–20 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

I found this over at LDS Living, adjusted it slightly and my husband just LOVED it. This was one I had to share.

Yum. I love chicken cordon Bleu. Never thought of doing it in a casserole. I'll have to try this. I wonder if it would be good with Swiss?

Thanks for sharing.
