Garlic Parmesan Chicken and Noodles

All this week I thought we would talk about some great casserole recipes. Hearty casseroles make for some weeknight wonderful meals. This one is full of flavors using a rotisserie chicken which is always a quick and easy fix for a busy evening.

· 6 ounces extra-wide egg noodles
· 1 tablespoon butter
· 2 tablespoons minced garlic
· 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
· 1 ¾ cup milk, half-and-half or light cream
· 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
· 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
· ½ cup Italian bread crumbs
· 2 tablespoons butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cook noodles according to package directions.
2. In a large saucepan melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add minced garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Add flour; cook and stir for a minute. Gradually stir in milk and continue to stir until thickened and bubbly.
3. Add chicken and ½ cup cheese, heat through. Gently stir in cooked noodles. Pour mixture into a greased 2 quart baking dish.
4. In a medium bowl, combine remaining ½ cup cheese with breadcrumbs and 2 tablespoons melted butter; toss to combine.
5. Sprinkle casserole with breadcrumb mixture. Bake, uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until topping starts to brown.
