Ingredients you need to make pot pie pasta:
This recipe uses pantry staple ingredients and is a good freezer clean out meal too for the frozen veggies stashed in your freezer!
- Butter: salted or unsalted butter, either or works!
- Onion: yellow or white, diced nice and small
- Peas & Carrots: the frozen peas and carrots is perfect for this meal
- Green Beans: frozen
- Egg Noodles: Egg noodles are my favorite to use in this casserole. I haven’t tested this recipe with any other noodle shape but I bet another small pasta shape would work well here.
- Fresh Thyme
- Rotisserie Chicken: I love the convenience of using a rotisserie chicken but feel free to use leftover shredded chicken.
- Cream of chicken soup
- Cream of celery (or cream of mushroom)
- Chicken broth
- Salt and pepper
How to make a pot pie pasta casserole
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Set aside a 9×13 inch baking dish.
- Bring water to boil in a large pot for the egg noodles. Cook according to package, al dente 6-7 minutes. Drain and set noodles aside.
- Shred the rotisserie chicken. ~3 cups. Set chicken aside in a bowl.
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, onion and celery and cook for ~3-4 minute. Add in the peas, carrots, green beans, thyme, salt and pepper and stir. Add in the flour and stir to coat the vegetables.
- Add in broth and milk and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 3-5 minutes then stir in the cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soups. Stir until combined and remove from heat.
- Pour the cooked noodles into the baking dish, followed by the chicken and then pour the vegetable mixture on top. Stir well until pasta, chicken and vegetable/sauce is evenly distributed.
- Sprinkle the top of the casserole with pie crumbles and bake for 25 minutes. Garnish with parsley and enjoy warm!
Ways to adapt this recipe
- Mix up the veggies! Omit or use different veggies. Broccoli is a really great addition. Mix and match the veggies you love most!
- Use chicken breasts, chicken thigh meat, or leftover turkey or ham.
- Switch out the egg noodles for your favorite pasta shape. Like I mentioned above, I haven’t tested this recipe with another pasta shape but I am sure it would work well.

Made this tonight for dinner. Delicious and super easy to do.
Hey Caitlyn! I am so glad, thank you so much!!
Could you make the casserole in the morning and put it in the refrigerator until it is time to cook it?
Hi Rebecca! I have never done that but I am sure it would be perfectly OK if you did 🙂 I hope you love it!! Thank you! xo, Tawnie
Love that this is made in a casserole dish. Perfect for serving a large group or weekly meal prep!
All the delicious yummy ingredients in a pot pie but easy and convienant to make.
I love pot pie but I never get it right and everything comes out of the pie crust. This is such a good alternative and I prefer the noodles.
Thank you so much Jera!!
My whole family really enjoyed this meal!
I’m so glad, thank you Stephanie!
This casserole was seriously good. I had never had anything like it but I will again now for sure. It was also a big hit with my picky kids.
Thank you so much!!
I love your recipes! My 20 year old grandson has lost 40 pounds through exercise and the proper choice of food. No more Pasta and reduce sugar and carbs! Some of your recipies include pasta, cream soup, or dried fruit. I make a pan of 5 energy bars weekly and would like to make the chicken pot pie for next week.
My question is: you have included the “nutrition facts” for the 5 ingredient energy bars (39.9 carbs and 26.8g sugar!) They are delicious but too many carbs and sugar. I am not able to find the nutrition facts for some of your other recipes. Are you including them in all your recipies or am I overlooking them? It would be helpful if you would include this information so we can select the recipies that are low in these item. We have been trying to limit carbs to 55-60 per day. Your advise will be most appreciated.
Thank you so much for your comment! I’m happy to hear of your success with weight loss. I have added in the nutrition label now. Best of luck!
Nice! A classic comfort food with a healthy twist. And I love that it’s a “cook once, eat twice” meal! That is if there’s any left.
Me too! Thanks Sonali. Hope you are enjoying the holiday season! 🙂
