Boil 3 chicken breasts with a packet of lipton onion soup mix and cut into strips when done.

Use water to boil the spaghetti. Add chicken, spaghetti, tomato sauce (we used homemade) in a big bowl and mix well. Pour into greased casserole dish. Cover with your favorite cheese. We used about a cup or so of parmesan and mozzarella. Baked about 20 min till cheese was melted and dish was bubbly.

And last pinned on Pinterest was “Mozzarella & Tomato Basil Caprese Flatbread”
