HOW TO MAKE CHEESY CHICKEN RIGATONI

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F. Using cooking spray, lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch pan.

Step 3: Place the cheese soup, evaporated milk, heavy cream, and garlic in a large saucepan. Mix well until combined and cook on medium-high heat until boiling. Once boiling, decrease the heat and let everything simmer for about 5 to 7 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Then, take the pan off the heat and whisk in the mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, and pepper.

Step 4: Place the cooked pasta along with the cooked chicken, cream of chicken soup, and cheese sauce in a large bowl. Mix well.

Step 5: Into the prepared dish, spoon the pasta mixture and sprinkle with the rest of the 1 c. mozzarella cheese and ¼ c. Parmesan cheese.

Step 6: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 45 minutes, uncovered, until bubbly and the cheese is golden brown.
