This casserole dish has clearly pushed all of our other favorite casserole dishes to the curb and confidently moved into the #1 spot.

At one point I thought my Chicken Teriyaki Casserole was the clear winner.  Then came along my Garlic Knot Pizza Casserole and it received rave reviews.  But this Cheesy Alfredo Chicken Casserole, my friends, has sauntered it's way into first place.

My family gobbled this dish up and it reheated perfectly on night number two when we were scrambling for food in between flag football games.  The only problem was we all wanted more on the second night!

Note to self.

Make a double batch next time.

This recipe is my 3rd installment as a Veetee Brand Ambassador.  I have had so much fun working with this company!  They are open to my ideas and I have really enjoyed showcasing their convenient on-the-go rice.

In case you missed the first two.  I started off with my Chinese Chicken Lettuce Cups.  Whoa! Did people love those.  It's a nice, light, yet tasty meal that both kids and adults love.  Love Chinese food? You'll love those lettuce cups.

My second recipe hit the ball out of the park.  By far my highest rated blog post of September...these Fried Stuffed Rice Balls.  They look fancy, but they are so easy to make. Eat them as a party appetizer or be crazy like me and eat them for lunch on a random Tuesday.  Just have a side of marinara for dipping!

I honestly created this casserole dish because I was in dire need of an easy family style meal that we could eat off of for a day or two.  We had a very busy week of school activities and I wanted something that I could mix up the day prior, stick in the fridge and bake off the following day.

This dish does JUST THAT.

It's low maintenance and incredibly tasty.  Love alfredo sauce?  It's in there.  Love grilled chicken? In there too.  Love a crunchy cracker topping?  Got it.

One of my kid's most favorite meals is fettuccine alfredo.  Especially with my homemade Garlic Alfredo Sauce.  And while I'm all about homemade, I took the convenience of a jarred alfredo sauce on this one.  I wanted it to be simple.  Casseroles are supposed to be simple!

Hey busy mamas, this one is for you.

If you're craving something comforting, creamy, tasty and easy, put this dish on your weekly meal rotation.  It's perfect for this time of year and will be top notch in the heart of winter when it's bone chilling cold.

Love the speckled egg dishes shown in the above photos?  I got my set on a trip to Galena, Illinois back in the day, but the Paula Deen line has a fun set too!  You can check hers out HERE.
