Alfredo bake

My inspiration for this meal was the shredded chicken I had sitting in my fridge leftover from the chicken and noodles I made the other night. No wait, I changed my mind, an even bigger inspiration for this dinner were the cute small oval baker stoneware pieces that I got from the Pampered Chef show that I hosted a couple weekends ago. They were so cute and I just could not resist them because they are perfect for individual sized portions of baked dishes and they give me the option to personalize my portion the way I want ::cough mushrooms cough::. :)

This was a quick meal that only takes a few minutes to throw together. Yeah I know it is nothing new and outrageous but I was happy to have the night off from school and anxious to update my blog.
