Four Cheese Chicken Pasta

If you like pasta with chicken and alferdo sauce you will like this recipe.  This is a family favorite and the boys get so excited when they see me making this.   (sorry I don't have a picture)

4 Cheese Chicken Pasta
what you need

  • 1 box of Bowtie Pasta
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 8oz cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 4.5 oz sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
  • 2 1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • Topping:
  • 1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 TBSP butter, melted
  • 1 or 2 TBSP Parmesan cheese
make it
Cook pasta according to package. Meanwhile, combine soup, cream cheese, mushrooms, whipping cream, butter and garlic powder. Stir in cheeses, cook and stir until melted. Add chicken, heat through. Drain pasta & add to sauce. Transfer to a shallow, greased 2 1/2qt baking dish. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over chicken mixture. Cover and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Uncover, bake 5-10 minutes longer or until golden brown.
Can be made ahead, but you will need to adjust baking time so that the dish is heated through.
