Cheesy Chicken Rotini

      Local cook, Nora Miller has once again created an award winning recipe. This chicken casserole has only 5 ingredients but is big on taste. A rich creamy cheese sauce covers the meat, noodles and veggies, but the diced tomatoes with green chilies gives it a little kick. It's also a bonus that this is a one skillet dinner and can be done in about 30 minutes. Congrats Nora.
