Timballo Spaghetti Casserole Haiku: "Change the pasta type. Strand noodles awkward to eat. Needs more parmesan!" I was thrown off by the ingredient list saying "cooked chicken" and instructions saying "bake til chicken is cooked through" so I just ignored that, and made everything as written w/ Costco's Kirkland canned chicken (I'm no can chicken snob; that Kirkland stuff is great!) The spaghetti noodles made this a little difficult to eat (i.e. hard to scoop/stab nummy ingredients all while twirling spaghetti) and 1 TB of parmesan was definitely not enough to sprinkle over the entire top, so we added more when we served it. Made a TON but the leftovers were just as good, if not better; when making again, I'd use a different noodle, reduce the mozzarella, increase the parm, and maybe saute some onions and peppers to mix in too.
Very good! I gave this 4 stars because I changed several things due to items I had on-hand. I cut the recipe in half for three adults. Used turkey pepperoni because that's what we like. Left out the green pepper and black olives as I didn't have any. Used mini rigatoni for the pasta and added extra sauce and extra chicken and the mushrooms. Sprinkled shredded cheddar and monterey jack mix on top, then shredded parmesan. My family loved it and would definitely make it again with the green pepper and olives. It was a great way to use leftover chicken! Also, I baked it in a pottery pie plate so it looked pretty, too.
