HOW TO MAKE FRESH ASPARAGUS AND CHICKEN CASSEROLE
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
Step 2: Then, grease lightly a 1 1/2-quart casserole dish.
Step 3: Boil a large pot of water. Add in the noodles and cook for about 5 minutes until almost tender. Drain and rinse the noodles under cold water.
Step 4: In a heavy skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Sautee the onion for 4 to 5 minutes while frequently stirring. Stir in the chicken, red bell pepper, celery, and chicken stock. Allow to boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Then, stir in the sour cream and oregano.
Step 5: Into the prepared dish, spoon half of the chicken mixture and spread. Place the asparagus over the chicken, evenly spreading the cooked noodles on top. Sprinkle over 5 tablespoons of parmesan cheese. Place the rest of the chicken mixture on top and sprinkle over the reserved parmesan cheese.
Step 6: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes until lightly brown.
