I saw this recipe over at Cooking With Libby last week(it may have even been Monday), new I had most of the ingredients at home and made it that night. It was oh so delicious! I made a few alterations because I couldn't remember the recipe exactly off hand but it turned out great. Thanks Libby!

- In a large saute pan, melt the butter over med/high heat. Add the onion, pepper and celery, cook until tender.
- Next add the cheese, cook until almost melted, then add the chicken, green chilis and hot sauce (if you are using it)
- Finally, add the pasta, mix well, pour into a 9x13 pan, top with shredded cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 30-50 minutes.
***Mine took close to 50 minutes because it sat out for a couple of hours before I baked it***
****The original recipe called for 2 cans of sliced mushrooms. I didn't have them on hand but would definitely use them next time****
NOTE : You could use a store bought rotisserie chicken but make sure to cook your noodles with canned chicken broth or bouillon cubes.
