Chicken Spaghetti FAQ
1. Can I use a pasta other than Spaghetti? You can! You could use angel hair, linguine, or fettuccine.
2. How long does it take to cook Chicken Spaghetti? This Chicken Spaghetti casserole cooks for 30 minutes in a 350F. oven.
3. Can Chicken Spaghetti be frozen for later? It can be! Just don’t bake it and once it’s all mixed together, pop it into the freezer. Make freezing casseroles like this even easier by lining your casserole dish with foil before filling it. Then once you fill the casserole dish, cover and freeze it in the casserole dish for a few hours or until solid. Then remove complete casserole in the foil from the dish. Place foil lined casserole in a freezer bag and then back into the freezer. When it’s time to get, just remove it from the bag and pop that frozen foil lined casserole back into a casserole dish and bake until hot.
