Casseroles are a great way to dish up food for a crowd, but they can sometimes be high in fat and calories and low in actual nutrition. The addition of colorful frozen veggies turns this casserole into a one-dish meal that offers needed vitamins and minerals, while still satisfying that comfort food tooth. There is a comfort food tooth, right?

Place cooked pasta in the bottom of a glass casserole dish.
Top with cooked, diced chicken.
Spread some Green Giant® Valley Fresh Steamers® over the chicken. Then pour your cheese sauce on top.
Top with buttery panko bread crumbs. Bake until golden brown and bubbly.
Serve the baked casserole to the hungry bellies surrounding your table. Enjoy!
