Gettin' fresh … in Northern Nevada

Fresh Asparagus and Chicken Casserole

Ya, I cooked dinner for my family on Mother’s Day.  (for shame!)  Don’t worry, I was sufficiently spoiled the rest of the day.

This is what I made:


Yummy, cheesy, gooey casserole heaven and I used the fresh asparagus from my CSA box!

The basics of the recipe are:

Grill up two decent size, boneless, skinless chicken breasts.  Cut into bite size pieces.

Bring a big pot of water to a boil and cook a regular size package of egg noodles al dente.

In a separate pan, saute a large scallion that has been finely chopped in some olive oil.  Add a chopped sweet, red bell pepper and two stalks of celery.  Then, mix in two cups of chicken broth.  Add about a pounds of fresh asparagus, in bite size pieces.  Bring to a boil.  Sprinkle some italian seasoning and pepper to taste.  Turn down to low and simmer.  Just before adding to noodles, turn heat off and mix in a pint of sour cream.

Spray a casserole pan with cooking oil and pour in cooked/drained noodles.  Add chicken next.  Then,veggies in cream sauce.  Sprinkle to with grated parmesan cheese.  Bake at 350 until browned, 15 to 20 minutes.

Then, you have this:
