My weeknight dinner menus are becoming a drag…

I could probably speak for most households when I say that weeknight dinner can certainly become a drag. It’s the routine of taco Tuesday and pizza Friday that really starts to get to me after a while. I’ve been in a slump the past two weeks and I decided to pull myself out of it before I sink deeper.

Starting next week, I will be planning my entire weeknight dinner schedule on Sunday and I will stick to it! Of course, Campbell’s Kitchen is one of the best resources for quick, easy and delicious dinner. (Quick disclosure note – I work with Campbell Soup Company and am constantly exposed to these great recipes. It makes meal planning so simple)

As I searched the database for something new and interesting, I found one particular recipe that really stuck out and I wanted to share it with all of you! This is Chicken Tetrazzini, otherwise known as Tuesday night dinner this week.

Chicken Tetrazzini
From: Campbell's Kitchen
Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes
Serves: 4


1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free)
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley
1/4 cup chopped red pepper OR pimiento
1/2 packages (8 ounces) spaghetti, cooked and drained
2 can (4.5 ounces each) Swanson® Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained


Heat the soup, water, cheese, parsley, pepper, if desired, spaghetti and chicken in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat until the mixture is hot and bubbling.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with spinach sautéed with garlic and Parmesan cheese garlic bread. For dessert serve oatmeal raisin cookies.

Best, and until next time, Kaitlin!

Good idea and the recipe sounds yummy.

I have the same issues every week.I don't like to repeat meals to much, but sometimes I get into the rut and I find myself making the same things over and over again.

What an easy and yummy recipe! I loved using cream soup as a pasta sauce cuz the texture is just so perfect. Thanks for sharing!

mmm. I've been eating a variation on this for 20+ years. Good to see they've updated the ingredient list :)
