Cheesy Chicken Fajita Casserole Recipe

I have this recipe in the oven cooking right now as I am typing this post. It looks so delicious. It is colorful with the red of the tomatoes and the green of the arugula. I am trying to eat more fruits and vegetables so I also added onion and mushrooms.


12 oz. box macaroni
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 4-oz. cans sliced mushrooms
   or 8-oz. fresh sliced mushrooms
 2 jars alfredo sauce
**I used roasted red pepper
8-12 oz. cheese
1 pkg.  bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1 pt. grape tomatoes, quartered
2 cups baby arugula, chopped
1  pkg. chicken southwest strips. chopped


Heat olive oil in a large frying pan, briefly. Add chopped onion and saute until clear. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Add chicken to frying pan and heat until heated through, then chop into bite size pieces, add mushrooms, tomatoes, and arugula. Drain pasta and add alfredo sauce, bacon, half the cheese, and the chicken mixture. Salt and pepper to taste. Spray a 9x13 casserole dish with cooking spray. Put casserole mixture into dish and top with remaining cheese. Cover with aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until heated through.

**If you are trying to cut calories and eat healthy you can use low fat cheese, turkey bacon, and whole wheat pasta.
