To begin making this casserole I put a pot of water on high heat to boil for some gluten free elbow pasta.

Next I put a large frying pan on the stove and turned the heat to medium.  I added 8 slices of bacon to the pan.

While the water was coming to a boil and the bacon was cooking, I drained three cans of Flakes of Chicken before dumping them into a mixing bowl.

I added some dried parsley, dried basil, dried oregano and dried sage to the meat in the bowl.

Once the bacon was cooked I patted it with paper towel to absorb the excess grease.  I also drained most of the bacon grease from the pan.

I cut up the bacon into small pieces with a pair of scissors.

When the water came to a boil I added in some gluten free elbow pasta and reduced the heat slightly.  

Boiling the pasta.

While the pasta cooked I used a fork to combine the flaked chicken and spices.

When the pasta was almost done I added baby spinach leaves to the bacon pan on med/low heat.  I stirred it while it cooked.

After 7 or 8 minutes I drained the pasta, rinsed it and added it back to the pot with about a tablespoon of olive oil. I stirred to coat.  You don’t want the pasta to be too soft because you will continue to heat it later with the other ingredients.

Next I dumped in the prepared chicken, chopped up bacon and a small can of diced tomatoes.  I stirred the ingredients together.

Then I added in the cooked spinach, Miracle Whip, salt and pepper.

After stirring in all the ingredients I left it on med/low heat for a couple of minutes to heat through stirring occasionally.
