Chicken And Bacon Pasta Bake Recipe

You know this recipe just happened. I didn't know what to prepare for dinner. I looked in the fridge and I thought of cooking chicken and potatoes but at the last minute I just thought of mixing everything, that's how this Pasta Bake Recipe came about. The results?  Amazing!!!.

Wait! I also mix ingredients then the results turn out to be a disaster 😂 I once cooked a meal but ended up not eating it, the meal stayed in the refrigerator til I decided to throw it away. 

It's called expectations vs reality.

But thank God for the meals that turned out delicious.


WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CASSEROLE AND A BAKE?

Casserole: Something made in a Casserole dish.something creamy or perhaps saucy and it's always cheesy.

Bake: Anything made in an oven.

I don't know whether to call this meal a Chicken and Bacon Pasta Bake or Chicken and Bacon Pasta Casserole. It's pretty much Casserole but I'll stick to Bake.
