Everyday Southern Living tweets a dinner idea. A few days ago they tweeted about a Three Cheese Pasta Bake for dinner. I checked out the recipe and thought it sounded fantastic!  I decided to give it a try – with a few changes. 

The original recipe used ziti.  I didn’t have any ziti; I only had elbow macaroni.  I went with the elbow macaroni and it was fine.  I also added chicken to make this more of a meal than a side dish.  This was SO good!  It was even good reheated the next day for lunch.  If you don’t like ricotta, try substituting cottage cheese.  I halved the recipe below and it was enough for at least 4 or 5 people.

  1. On your three cheese chicken bake. Could we substitute the noodles for cheese tortellini?

      1. I made this tonight. It was very good. My question is I made the recipe as is. for three people can I freeze this already cooked and reheat later?

      1. Is there anything that can be substituted for the ricotta cheese?! My husband can’t eat ricotta cheese.

  2. I'm finding this recipe nine years after you posted it! I had wanted to add rotisserie chicken, but when I went to put it in, I felt it was a few days beyond what we should use. I thought of heading out to pick up another chicken, but then I thought … hmmm, what do I have on hand that I can use? I had some frozen italian meatballs, so I heated those and added them into the mix instead of the chicken. Oh – so – good! Thanks for this recipe!

  3. I seasoned the chicken before adding it to the rest of the recipe and let me tell ya we ate it up. thank you so much for great recipes.
