White Chicken Chili Spaghetti with Cheese

My kids made this dish up and gave it a name!

It started out as warmed-up leftovers dressed up with a bit of shredded cheese. I guess if you put shredded cheese on pretty much anything they'll love it.

It was actually parts of two dishes -- white chicken chili and chicken noodle soup with the noodles separated from the broth. I served the chili and the noodles in two parts on their plates, sprinkled all of it with cheese, and was very doubtful that they would eat any of it when I served it. They mixed it all up together, loved it, and dubbed it White Chicken Chili Spaghetti with Cheese.

Here's how you make this interesting dish.

White Chicken Chili Spaghetti with Cheese

4-6 chicken thighs (or whatever kind of chicken you like)
1 can white beans
1 can diced tomatoes
1 pkg. spaghetti noodles
Salt and pepper to taste
Shredded cheese

Put the chicken in a pan with water and set it to boiling. After it gets about three-fourths done, get another pan and start the spaghetti to cooking. I used regular spaghetti and broke the sticks into thirds.

When it's all almost done, get another pan and mix the beans and tomatoes (I didn't drain anything) and start them cooking.

When the chicken gets done mix it up in the beans and tomatoes.

Put the spaghetti on a plate and top it with the chili. Sprinkle with cheese.
