Butternut Cream, Chicken & Kale Pasta Bake

"The butternut cream sauce envelope this dish to tie the flavors together!" Growing up, I was never a fan of casseroles; they all seemed to taste like a variety of textures in a thick goop. I can assure you, this is not one of those, In each bite you taste the tender chicken, mushrooms and sweet roasted tomatoes. The butternut squash cream sauce adds a touch of flavor without overpowering the other ingredients. It was a hit at my recent book club night!
