Rhonda's Chicken Spaghetti

Are you looking for a pot luck or freezable dinner that is different? This is not your old fashioned spaghetti casserole. This spaghetti has a kick and it so chock full of Italian goodies. Give it a try just remember that you'll need a healthy appetite or help to finish it all off. I usually put it in two seperate baking dishes one for eating that night and one for friends or the freezer.
