Awesome Chicken Casserole

This is a great Casserole that the whole family loves, even a certain very picky two year old.
1 Box rotini noodles
1 block of cream cheese
2 cans of cream of celery, or chicken
1 can of milk or until desired creaminess
3/4c. Parmesan cheese
2 cans chicken/ or left over chicken, chopped.
Garlic powder to taste. I love garlic, so I put in a good bit.
Onion powder, if you have it.
Two stack of Ritz crackers

While cooking pasta, heat your cheesy cream sauce in microwave. (all ingredients except chicken and crushed crackers.)
Mix well.
Add red pepper flakes, black pepper, salt to taste.
Carefully stir in chicken. Chunks are nice.
Combine mixture to noodles. Put in dish
Add crushed Ritz crackers on top with thin shavings of butter.
Put under broiler until crackers are browned, and butter is melted.
For a nice filler, I will sometimes add broccoli too 🙂 Very yummy.

 When you cook the noodles add a tablespoon of butter or even butter spray to keep noodles from sticking together.
