After reading the reviews, I made the decision to cook the macaroni before adding it to the casserole ingredients. I think making this decision helped keep some of the excess starch and gummy-ness out of the casserole and I didn't have to worry about undercooked pasta. I used two large cubed chicken breasts that I sauteed with a little butter/EVOO before adding the chopped onion, FRESH mushrooms (I don't keep canned mushrooms on hand) and some fresh minced garlic in with it. This really only needed about 20 minutes in the hot oven to heat through, seeing as I pre-cooked the macaroni. We didn't really care for this as is. I think it could use some spices or something to make it a little more pleasing to the palate. It's a good start. I think using fresh chicken, fresh mushrooms and adding garlic made it a little better than written.
