Baked Chicken and Pasta with 3 cheeses

"Kids and wife loved it. Co-workers said to bring in the rest to try. I need to tweak it a little. I added Italian style pork sausage because I didn't have Italian sausage and I doubled the ingredients except Spanish and cream cheese, next time I'll will. I did season the chicken to my liken. Oh, I was heavy-handed with the mozzarella. Very cheesy and very satisfied!"

I had left over mushrooms so I added those and I will make again with some adjustments such as garlic and Italian seasonings.

Tried it. Did a few things different but definitely will make again. Even my three year old who's hella picky ate it. :)

Very good! I do recommend adding a little more seasoning to the meat and sauce (italian seasoning, salt). And I used a can of garlic roasted tomatos that added a little more flavor to it.
