Chicken Spaghetti!!

Happy Sunday!!! The weekend is almost over but fortunately I'm on break until Wednesday! :D I've cooked some yummy lemon pepper chicken in the oven and I thought that I would share a recipe with you! I haven't posted one in a while so I'll share one that is perfect for the Fall season: 
Chicken Spaghetti
It's my Mom's recipe and it makes several servings so it's great for a get
together or for storing in your freezer!

Ingredients:
6 Chicken Breasts
1 Can of Chicken Broth
Linguine Pasta
Large Red Bell Pepper
Large Green Bell Pepper
Medium Yellow Onion
8 to 10 oz. pack of Baby Bella Mushrooms
Small Package Frozen English Peas
1 Can of Rotel Tomatoes
1 Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 Tbsp Butter
Salt and Pepper
Block of Velveeta Cheese (or shredded)
Shredded Parmesan

Directions:
Boil 6 chicken breasts in 1 can of chicken broth and water. (Enough water added to the broth to fully cover the chicken while boiling) Once the chicken is done, cool the chicken and reserve the broth/water.
Boil Linguine pasta in broth/water. (Set aside broth/water again once pasta is done!)
Dice the red pepper, green pepper and yellow onion.
Melt Butter in a saucepan and saute peppers and onions. Once the onions become translucent, add mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes. Add Rotel tomatoes (DO NOT DRAIN) and add cream of mushroom soup. Stir until fully heated and pull from heat. Cube chicken and add to sauce along with the frozen peas. Lightly toss the sauce to prevent from breaking the peas.
In a casserole dish (WITH GLASS LID), layer the following: pasta, sauce, salt & pepper and parmesan (optional). Then repeat until pasta and sauce are utilized. Use the broth/water in case the pasta is not fully covered with sauce (this will prevent it from drying out!)
Bake with the lid on at 350F for 40 minutes. Pull from oven and layer thin slices of Velveeta cheese (or you can use shredded Velveeta). Return pan to oven without lid until the cheese melts.
Let sit for about 5 minutes to cool. You're Done!

My mom serves this with some garlic bread and a small salad.
I hope you find this to be a must have recipe for the upcoming cold months! I will be posting other recipes from my Mom's "cookbook" for winter recipes soon...including Chili and Chicken & Dumplings! Enjoy!!
