Cheesy Chicken Asparagus Casserole

Rated as 4.24 out of 5 Stars

"This easy-to-make casserole was a hit at my house! I used leftovers for part of it, which is always a plus, and it all went together so well. As for the pasta, we had a mix of cooked bow ties, elbows and spirals and they worked great! My 16-month-old daughter loved it, and the leftovers reheated beautifully the next day. Hope you like it as much as we did!"

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in bow tie pasta and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender but still slightly firm, about 12 minutes. Drain well and set aside.
  2. Place asparagus into a large skillet with about 1 inch of water. Place over medium heat, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low. Cover skillet and cook until asparagus pieces are bright green and tender, about 8 minutes; drain well and set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  5. Whisk cream of asparagus soup with milk in a bowl until smooth.
  6. Spread the cooked bow tie pasta over the bottom of the baking dish.
  7. Pour about 1/4 of the soup mixture over the pasta, stirring gently to coat pasta with soup.
  8. Lay chicken breast slices over pasta.
  9. Spread the asparagus over the chicken slices.
  10. Pour remaining soup mixture evenly over the casserole, being sure it soaks through to the bottom of the dish. Top casserole with shredded Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven until the casserole is hot and the cheese topping is browned and bubbling, about 35 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I made it many times with cream of asparagus soup. It is always a hit. This a salad and bread! Yum

Had both cream of mushroom/chicken but no asparagus soup so added one of each. I felt three cans was unnecessary. Added sauteed mushrooms. Shredded cheddar on top and excellent!

I halved the recipe, I used only one can of Mushroom soup and a 10 0z can of chicken, I added some mushroom with the asparagus and sautéed instead of cooking in water, we liked it and will make ...

This was delicious! The recipe calls for three cans of soup, but it is very good and not so soupy with two. Also, shredded Parmesan cheese can be substituted for the cheddar/jack. Everyone lo...

Used this as a base recipe - made it with a few modifications and it turned out wonderful.
