Tips For Making Creamy Chicken Bacon Baked Spaghetti

*Be sure to not overcook your spaghetti noodles. In fact, undercook for 1 minute so they keep their bite.

*Use Rotisserie chicken, shredded to cut down on prep time.

*Pre-cook your bacon or use microwave bacon to save even more time.

*Store leftovers in an airtight container for no more than 3 days.

*When reheating, add a couple splashes of milk or cream to loosen sauce that thickens.
