Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Cheesy Chicken Alfredo and Blackstone Cabernet

After looking at Pinterest the other day to find some new recipes, I decided on a chicken casserole that was way more involved than I ever get for dinner so... I created my own.

You Will Need

3 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
12 oz of uncooked Pasta (I used bowtie)
1 jar (8oz) Alfredo sauce
1 cup Milk
1-2 Tbsp Garlic Powder (or fresh if on hand)
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese
1.5 cups mozzarella cheese

Cut chicken into small pieces and brown in a skillet with olive oil and garlic.  I chopped mine up for even smaller pieces.  When chicken is fully cooked, add Alfredo, milk and cream cheese.  simmer on low until mixed well and cream cheese is melted. Set aside

Boil pasta until done, drain and add to chicken mixture.  Toss to make sure it's evenly coated

Put into a 9x9 casserole dish and generously cover with mozzarella.  Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

Cool (10 minutes)


Kids loved it and both had seconds

I enjoyed mine with this...

An inexpensive ($8.99) Cabernet found at my local Food Lion.

Love the new labels for Blackstone.  I think that's what caught my eye.

This wine has a palate of plum, pepper and vanilla with a spicy finish. Not overly bold bet a pleasant enough wine to sip on with dinner on a school night.
