Here is the deal, we have quite a few pregnant and new moms in my SS group, some on strict bedrest and several others with illnesses and we are trying to get together a few recipes- mainly casseroles that they can pull out the freezer and use- I have 1 really good Chicken Rotel recipe ( its from my Nana and it is delicious!!!) but i would LOVE to have some other casserole recipes to chose from! I have been searching online but you just never know how good the recipe really is. SOOOO, I was hoping that someone out there who reads this blog might like to share some of their favorites with me!!!!!!! Please, my family could use a few different recipes in the dinner mix as well! ok- just 1 stipulation- I have a crawling/walking 11 month old soo it can't be too difficult or take like 3 hrs!!! THANKS EVERYONE for taking the time to comment and post recipes!!!!! I know they will be a blessing to the homes they go to and the families they minister too!!

UPDATE:: THANKS SOO MUCH FOR ALL THE COMMENTS AND RECIPES!!!!! You guys are awesome- I am looking forward to trying some of the recipes this weekend=)

I love this one...

3 shredded chicken breasts
1 bag boil in bag rice
small pack broccoli
1 can of cream of chicken soup
Sharp/Cheddar Cheese
Townhouse Crackers
1/2 stick melted butter

Cook chicken and shred - cook rice - Cook soup (mix with milk)

put rice in bottom of 9x11 pan and add soup, broccoli and chicken (you can mix all together if you'd like) spread some shredded sharp cheddar cheese and crumbled crackers on top pur butter over it and bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. It's really east even though there are several items... ;-)

You can always so a baked spaghetti... I layer it with cheese/sauce/spaghetti and bake - freezes well too and it's CHEAP!!
