Easy Recipe (Trust me, if it's not easy, I don't cook it!)

I saw this recipe in the casserole group at Cafemom 
It is DELICIOUS!!!  
ALL my boys had seconds and my oldest even said it's his new favorite food..."even better than tacos!"...which is HUGE because those have been his fav since Kindergarten :-O

Chicken, Broccoli & Ravioli Alfredo
  • 2 lbs pre-packaged 4-cheese ravioli, cooked and drained 
  • 2 cups frozen broccoli florets, defrosted 
  • 1-1/2 cups pre-cooked chicken strips, diced 
  • 1 jar alfredo sauce 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, 
  • divided 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese 
  • 1 tbsp butter 
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Coat the bottom of a 9×13 glass baking dish with a thin layer of alfredo sauce. In a medium bowl, mix the ravioli, broccoli, chicken, garlic, alfredo sauce, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese until combined. (Be careful not to mix too hard that you tear the ravioli.)Place mixture into baking dish and top with 1/2 cup mozzarella and parmesan cheese.Cut the butter into small pieces and scatter on top of the cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is hot and bubbly. Set to broil for additional 5 minutes if you want it more toasty!

CHANGES I MADE: I used fresh broccoli and boiled it for a couple min before stirring it in, didn't measure it out, nor did I measure the chicken which I grilled and diced. I used 2 jars of alfredo, and probably more mozzarella and parmesan than the surgeon general would allow without issuing a warning first. Also, I left out the garlic (but they make garlic alfredo sauce if that's your thing) and I forgot the butter (my bad).

I have a friend who's going to try it with shrimp instead...DEFINITELY gonna have to add that to the menu this week!

Looks good and something that I might be able to cook as well...of course, that means that I would have to go to the grocery store doesn't it??
