  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 13x9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
  3. Melt 6 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir mushrooms, onion, and celery in melted butter until just tender, 5 to 6 minutes; transfer to a large bowl.
  4. Stir diced tomatoes, cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth, chopped green chiles, sour cream, seasoned salt, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper into the mushroom mixture. Add chicken and Cheddar cheese; stir. Gently toss the pasta with the mixture to coat the pasta completely; transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  5. Mix bread crumbs and melted butter in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over the pasta mixture.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until hot and bubbly, 30 to 40 minutes.

This is a great change from regular spaghetti. Great with a salad & rolls or garlic bread, easy to make & will feed alot of people. You can use jalapenos instead of the chili peppers to spice it up a bit, but no need to make any other alterations. Great just like it is.

I did not love this recipe as written, but in full disclosure I simply forgot the onion. However, I don't think that would've changed the stars on this one for me. I think I would be willing to try it again, and sub out some of the veggies for some others as the original author suggested. I think I would prefer it with zucchini or asparagus over the green chiles. I just was not a huge fan of that taste in this recipe. decent base though, and an interesting way to use spaghetti outside of the standard dish.

It was great. Easy to fix. Tasted real good. Tastes just as good, if not better, two days later. I followed the recipe exactly, using gluten-free pasta rather than regular. I think that if a 3yo was not in the household, I would double the cayenne.

I used fat-free cream of mushroom soup,i also replaced the 1/2cup of sour cream with 1/2 cup of greek yogurt

I made changes so I'll give it 5 stars but my version was probably a 3 star. I didn't have mushrooms or celery so I subbed broccoli. The broccoli was actually the best part of the dish. I also didn't have cream of mushroom, but had cream of chicken, so I used that. I used whole wheat pasta and it turned out well in terms of consistency. Maybe if I had followed the recipe it would've been better. It kind of was a one note dish. The flavors melded almost too much.

Just made this awesome dish and loved it! I did make a few variations to use what I had and like, but this versatile recipe allowed for that. Here's what I changed: I added a can of artichoke hearts, used Parmesan and Swiss cheese instead of the cheddar, used 1 can cream of mushroom and 1 can cream of chicken, used 1 c. Water since I didn't have any broth and crushed up Italian bread crumbs in place of the panko bread crumbs. I did use the same seasonings, but used very little cayenne pepper and left out the green chiles and tomatoes ( my kids don't like them.) Loved how it came together and turned out!

Awesome! !

Awesome!! We all loved it! My husband and son don't love mushrooms, so I omitted them. I also finely chopped one red bell, and a couple of garlic cloves and added these to the celery and onion while sauteeing. I used about three cups of baked, shredded chicken, and added a cup of shredded parmesan with the cheddar. My goodness, you'd have thought I'd cooked something gourmet... lol... Thanks for the recipe!! Yummy!
