Pasta Shells with Chicken & Broccoli

"This cheesy entree can be assembled ahead of time and popped in the oven when company arrives," I suggest rounding out the meal with a tossed salad and warm bread.

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. MAKES: 7 servings

1 jar (16 ounces) Alfredo sauce
2 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
2 cups diced cooked chicken
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
21 jumbo pasta shells, cooked and drained

In a large bowl, combine the Alfredo sauce, broccoli, chicken and cheeses. Spoon into pasta shells. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.

Cover and bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until heated through.

Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked casserole. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake casserole as directed, increasing time as necessary to heat through and for a thermometer inserted in center to read 165°.
