Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cook the linguine according to package directions. Drain the pasta and set it aside.

Step 4

Combine the sauteed vegetables in a large bowl with the chopped chicken, both cans of soup, sour cream, peas and one-half cup of the Parmesan cheese. Mix well and add salt and pepper to taste.

Add the linguine to the bowl and toss evenly.

Step 6

Place the ingredients of the bowl into a greased 11-by-7-inch baking dish and sprinkle the top with the remaining Parmesan.

Step 7

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, until it is golden brown and the sauce bubbles. Remove and let cool for five minutes before serving.
