cost per recipe: $11.71

  • 8 ounces uncooked spaghetti (this will make about 4 cups cooked)
  • 4 tablespoons butter (amount divided in recipe steps below)
  • 1/3 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms (about 3 1/2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken or turkey
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas


  • Tips

    • For the easiest cooked chicken, substitute 2 cans (12.5 ounces each) Swanson® Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained, for the 3 cups cooked chicken.
  • Step 1

    Cook and drain the spaghetti according to the package directions.  While the spaghetti is cooking, heat the oven to 400°F.  Melt 2 tablespoons butter.  Stir the melted butter and the bread crumbs in a small bowl.

  • Step 2

    Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat.  Add the onion and cook for 1 minute.  Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until tender.  Add the sherry and cook and stir for 1 minute.

  • Step 3

    Stir in the soup, milk and Parmesan cheese. Add the chicken, peas and cooked spaghetti and toss to coat.  Season with salt and pepper.  Spoon the chicken mixture into a 13x9x2-inch baking dish.  Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the chicken mixture.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 25 minutes or until the mixture is hot and the bread crumb mixture is lightly browned.

    This is great as is or can add touches to bump it up a notch, I added 1 can cream of celery and 1 reg. size can cream of mushroom soup, mix together with 1/2 c white wine and 1/2 c sour cream, add cooked peas.
    I also do a small whole turkey in crock pot with diced onions and when home use this broth and pull turkey off, put everything together while noodles cook and dinner done in 20 minutes. Lots of flavor - everyone LOVES IT. Mix Italian Bread with butter for a topping - makes it Delish!!
    *Adult Style - Dice mushrooms simmer in butter with some fresh garlic, Add steamed diced broccoli instead of peas. **
