There's just something so comforting and easy about a dish that's almost a one-pot meal, so I'm always on the lookout for one that sounds good and has ingredients that I can usually find in my pantry. It's particularly good when you're in a last-minute rush since this one can be put together to feed the family in no time if you have leftover chicken on hand.

The recipe appeared in my inbox from Taste of Home and immediately caught my eye because it uses leftover chicken, frozen creamed spinach and pasta - all those things that make a good, easy casserole.

I also read the reviews and most were very positive, but there was one that read: "You couldn't call it cooking if it has canned soup in it."
