Chicken Spaghetti Bake

Total Time

Prep: 1 hour Bake: 45 min. + standing


3 casseroles (10-12 servings each)

This casserole is always a hit at church and anywhere else I serve it. For variety, I sometimes substitute different cheeses, spiral pasta or cooked turkey for the chicken.—Renee Quintero, Mission, Texas


  • 3 packages (two 16 ounces, one 7 ounces) thin spaghetti
  • 1/2 cup olive oil, divided
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 2 large green peppers, chopped
  • 3 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 6 to 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 jars (26 ounces each) spaghetti sauce
  • 3 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (7 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 9 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 6 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions; rinse and drain. Toss with 1/4 cup oil; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, saute the onions, green peppers and zucchini in remaining oil until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce and olives; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Stir in chicken and soup.
  3. Place 2-1/4 cups spaghetti each in three greased 13x9-in. baking dishes. Top each with 4 cups sauce and 1 cup cheese. Layer with 2-1/4 cups spaghetti and 2 cups sauce.
  4. Cover and bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
