Cheesy Chicken and Pasta Casserole

2 C. cooked chicken, diced $1.00
1 lb. farfalle pasta (bowtie) or other small shaped pasta (penne works well, too) $.89
1 jar Alfredo sauce $1.25
1/2 C. light sour cream $.25
4 oz. shredded colby jack cheese $.25
1/4 C. parmesan $.25
1/8 C. breadcrumbs $.05
1 T. parsley $.05

Cook pasta according to directions on package, cook until al dente. Drain, rinse with cold water.

While pasta is boiling, grease a 13x9" baking dish. Combine sour cream and Alfredo sauce in a separate bowl.

Toss chicken and pasta together, add to prepared pan. Stir in Alfredo sauce mixture. Top with cheese, bread crumbs, and parsley and bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and sauce is heated through.

Yields = 6 servings
$3.99 or $.67 per serving

For a variation: Try your favorite veggie blend sauteed, caramelized, or roasted and either tossed with the pasta or as a hearty side dish.
