Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta Bake

Fall has officially started and I’m so excited! The weather is starting to get cooler, the clothes are getting cozier, and the food is getting tastier. You see, I love pumpkin flavored fall food as much as the next blogger (although I’ve never had a pumpkin spice latte, if you can believe it), but my all-time favorite fall food is casseroles.

They’re so cozy and they warm you from the inside out. A tasty casserole is the ultimate comfort food, and you can usually live off the leftovers for a few days.

This particular casserole has all the components of chicken cordon bleu, mixed with some pasta and topped with a light stuffing – fall comfort food to the MAX.
