Chicken Spaghetti

Some days I feel like I’m just coming up with different ways to consume cheese and carbs.  This is one of those days.  Allow me to introduce you to Chicken Spaghetti; a creamy casserole concoction that’s got a bit of a cayenne pepper kick, and delicious veggies to boot. It’s shameless, glorious, comfort food.  Don’t be shy, dig in.

Line up your ingredients:  chopped peppers, pimentos, cream of celery soup, cayenne pepper, season salt, broth and CHEESE. Lots of wonderful cheese.  And a big pile of spaghetti, naturally.
