3 Meat Pasta

You know I love me some Paula Deen and this is another home run from her!  And, to my surprise, there's no butter in the recipe! Ha!  We had this last night with bread sticks and it is fab!  I tweaked and added some things, which are in red.


1 pound angel hair pasta (I used spaghetti just because I already had it in the pantry.)
2 cups cooked chicken, off the bone (I used 4 medium sized chicken breasts & cubed them.)
2 cups cooked sausage, cut 1/2-inch thick
2 cups cooked ham, cubed
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, diced (I added this because a lot of the reviews said it was a good addition and it was!)
2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
16 ounces cottage cheese
8 ounces sour cream (She added this on the episode, but it's not on the online recipe.)
3 chicken bouillon cubes
1 cup hot water
1 to 2 cups Parmesan cheese, grated


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large pot, boil salted water for angel hair pasta. When cooked, drain and set aside.

In a large bowl mix together the chicken, sausage, ham, onions, cheddar cheese and cottage cheese.  I did things a little different here.  I sauteed the onion, bell peppers while I cooked the chicken breast pieces.  Then I added the sausage and ham.  I think this is the best way to do this so everything is already cooked.  The flavor was so good!

In a separate small pot, dissolve bouillon cubes with hot water and pour over the meat and pasta. This seemed weird to me, but do it and pour all of it on there. 

Pour mixture into a 9 by 12 by 2-inch greased baking dish and top with the Parmesan cheese. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the bubbling around the edges.
