Cannellini Rotini Chicken Mushroom Casserole

This Cannellini Rotini Chicken Mushroom Casserole is a great dinner dish, and perfect for the Fall! I just love cooking casseroles in the fall season.  Not only are the super easy to prepare, but they are warm, comforting, filling, and remind you of a good ol’ potlock!  In this Cannellini Rotini Chicken Mushroom Casserole, you prepare the pasta and the chicken seperately, then you add the other ingredients and bake it for 40 minutes!  The Mushroom soup is a perfect “glue” to hold the casserole together, so once it’s cooled off all you need to do is slice and serve.
