Baked Chicken Capellini

A beautiful day here but I have been fending off a cold for the past week so it meant the great indoors, Hallmark Christmas movies and gift wrapping for me today.  I had already done the homemade chicken soup routine one day this week (thank goodness for a well stocked freezer with goodies) and wanted to make a new comfort food for the sniffles.

Baked Chicken Capellini

2 chicken breasts, braised and shredded
8 oz Capellini, cooked al dente and drained
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp milk
1 tbsp parsley
1 1/2 cups of your favorite pasta sauce
Parmesan cheese

Place capellini at the bottom of a greased 6 x 10 baking dish or a round casserole.  Microwave cream cheese and milk for 30 seconds, stir and add parsley and then spread over capellini.  Top with chicken mixed with pasta sauce.  Bake at 325° for 30 minutes.  Top with Parmesan cheese.

I enjoyed it so much that I went back for seconds.  It is feed a cold and starve a fever right?
