Each year on their birthday my children get to pick their favorite dinner - start to finish, as many courses as they want (though usually they only want dinner and dessert). It's a special family tradition and one I look forward to each year. My middle daughter's birthday is this week and here is her birthday dinner selection. Dessert will be a devil's food cake with cream cheese frosting.

Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake

  • 2-3 cooked & chopped chicken breasts OR pull apart a rotisserie chicken
  • 1 box of penne pasta
  • 2 jars of alfredo sauce
  • 2 cups of shredded mozzerella cheese
  • 1 tsp basil
  • black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and boil pasta according to directions while you chop or pull apart your chicken.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients - setting aside one cup of the cheese.
  3. Put the mixture in a greased 9x13 baking dish, top with remaining cheese and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
