We always do our grocery shopping together.  The whole fam.  Every week we head to one of the local markets, one of our favorites is Kroger.  Grocery shopping for us is a grand adventure.  Shoot, anything involving all of the kids is a grand adventure!  The two older girls bicker non stop.  The two year old roams around grabbing any Frozen merchandise she can get her hands on, and the baby growls and chews on his teething ring.

And while there looking for the usual weekly list of items, I saw the Bertolli® Sauces part of Kroger’s Taste of Italy program.  One of my favorite comfort foods are pastas!  In the midst of grocery shopping chaos I had the urge to curl up on the couch in my comfy clothes and a healthy portion of my favorite Tuscan-Inspired Feast, after bedtime.  Meaning it would be quiet.  Just me and the hubs.  So of course I snagged the sauce.  Duh.

Now while my daydream of indulging in a favorite meal of mine didn’t quite happen.  I did make a wonderful family dinner that we all enjoyed.  Together.  And that’s better!!  Just don’t tell anyone, I snuck in a carton of ice cream to that grocery cart.  For after bedtime.  Just for me.   Chicken Parmesan Casserole made in the slow cooker using ONLY 7 ingredients!

This dish is bursting with tender, flavorful chicken.  I let it simmer in the slow cooker for four hours on high with the Bertolli® Tomato & Basil sauce, some chicken stock and chopped garlic and onions.  When the chicken was done I took it out and placed it on a plate, shredded it and added it back to the slow cooker with some noodles.  About 20 extra minutes in the slow cooker and the noodles were perfect!  Added a bit of salt to the dish, stirred it.  And that’s all!
