This Cheesy Chicken Rigatoni can be made ahead of time and refrigerated overnight or even frozen. It makes a ton. It would be perfect for a crowd! It is also a great way to use up any of the leftover Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken I shared earlier this week.

This Cheesy Chicken Rigatoni only takes a few minutes to whip together and is ready to eat in under an hour. I used rotisserie chicken in this casserole to cut down on time. I made the quick cheese sauce while the pasta boiled and then just tossed everything together. Super easy!

This Cheesy Chicken Rigatoni is definitely a new favorite in our house. It is hard to beat warm cheesy chicken and pasta. You could even add some mushrooms and spinach to the casserole. YUM! Comfort food at its best!!

  3. Cant wait to try this. If i wanted to add spinach, should i use fresh or frozen? Does it just get added with the mix?

    1. I would use frozen. Make sure to thaw and drain the water out really good. I press it between paper towels and really ring it out. Just add it to the pasta mixture before putting it in the pan. Enjoy!

  5. I need to feed approximately 23 people. Would this be enough or should I double the recipe?
