Instructions

The fettuccine in this casserole cooks inside the oven while the pan is tightly covered in foil. Make sure to toss the noodles well, covering them completely with liquid so they cook through.

  4. Melt cream cheese in the microwave or over low heat on the stove and transfer to a large bowl. Whisk in chicken broth until smooth. 
  5. Pour the cream cheese and chicken broth mixture over the top of the ingredients in the casserole dish. 
  6. Sprinkle evenly with cheese.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes until cheese has melted and browned. 
  8. Remove from the oven and serve hot.
