Cordon bleu casserole

This week, Mr. U told me that he would really love a casserole (the man LOVES casseroles!) and Joshua told me that he really wanted pasta. So, here's the perfect combination and it is QUITE tasy, too!!!

Cordon bleu casserole
(adapted from Karin Calloway's recipe)

16 ounces fettuccine noodles
1 tablespoon butter
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 cups cooked, diced chicken
1 1/2 cups diced smoked ham
1 can cream of celery soup*
1 can cream of chicken soup*
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese, divided

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook fettuccine as directed. Do not overcook. Drain and return to pot.

While pasta cooks, heat butter in a medium saute pan. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, until golden, about 5 minutes (and if you just can't resist the urge, go ahead and salt these, too! Mmm!!). Set aside.

Combine chicken, ham, soups and milk in a large bowl. Add mushrooms and half of the shredded Swiss. Toss the soup mixture with the cooked fettuccine. Spray a 9- by 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray and pour in the fettuccine mixture. Top with remaining Swiss cheese. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, until heated through and bubbly. Toss lightly before serving to distribute the sauce.

I served this with a big salad of romaine lettue and roma tomatoes with Thousand Island Dressing. Yum!!
