How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cook the pasta in boiling, salted water until just slightly under al dente (since this will go into the oven and continue to cook).
  • Meanwhile, cook the bacon until crisp; drain the fat and set aside.
  • Drain the pasta.
  • Return the hot pot to the stove (without the pasta for now) and put the heat on medium.
  • Add the tablespoon of oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the grated onion and grated (or pressed or minced) garlic to the pot and cook 2 minutes or so.
  • Add the onion & chive cream cheese and stir to combine and to allow the cream cheese to soften well.
  • Add the cream of mushroom soup and the can of milk and stir well to combine everything.
  • Turn off the heat and add the pasta back into the pot and stir to coat the pasta well.
  • Add the cooked, chopped chicken to the pot as well as the bacon and the 2 cups swiss cheese and stir well to combine everything.
  • Season the mixture with salt & pepper.
  • Turn the mixture out into a 9x13 casserole dish and bake in the 350 degree oven, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
  • (If you've forgotten to preheat your oven, as I so often do, you may want to extend this to 25 minutes or so.)

    This sounds so very good! Hope you don't mind if I substitute soy bacon (I don't eat pork)...I promise it will be delicious!

    This sounds delicious! Although I'm one of those who doesn't care for Swiss, I can sub any other cheese though. Saving....
