CHICKEN / CRAB & AVACADO CASPEROLE

15 precooked & seasoned. chicken wings, deboned and cleaned
1/2 lb of sliced bella-baby mushrooms (or your favorite)
1 onion chopped and cleaned
3 tb. of minced garlic
2 fresh sprigs of rosemary

1 container of cream cheese and chives 8oz

1/4 cup of grated fresh parmesean

2/3 - 1 cup of low sodium chicken broth

8 oz of cooked tri colored pasta rigatoni

1/3 cup cleaned picked lump crab meat

1 whole avacado cubed

2 Tb. Butter or Margerine

Sea Salt *to taste.


Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Grease a casserole dish. Saute fresh veggies and oil in the butter over low heat until clear. Put pasta in dish and combine with the cream cheese until distributed evenly all the way through. Spread evenly in dish and add the cooked chicken and stir. Add the sauteed veggie mixture and sprinkle with some sea salt. Stir. Add the Lump Crab Meat and Avacado and fold into mixture. Add Chicken Broth to moisten a bit at a time, reserving any unneeded liquid. (you do not want "extra" in your dish) Sprinkle parm. cheese on top and spread evenly in pan. Place in oven and cook until heated throughout.


Serve while warm. Fresh Salad or Fruit accompanies this well as a main dish.

For a Halloween Twist Serve in a GHOST Shaped Dish or a White Casserole dish...... some cotton pulled around the outside of the bowl or a white material draped around the outside of the dish enhances the appearance. Use a White Grated Cheese to cover the entire casserole and put back in the oven to melt" . make a "ghoulish" face on top with Eyes made from "black olives" and an open ghoulish mouth with a green pepper ring.
