italian chicken cheesy pasta

Standard

A friend in Japan brought this over after I gave birth to my first.  I have yet to replicate it… she could hardly even tell me what was in it or how to make it since she makes it differently every time.  I finally drug this out of her…

I use whatever veggies are in season.  What makes it so delicious is the Italian seasoning with the bread crumbs on top.  It gives it a nice crunchy crust on top.
