Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti

I must admit that, since hubby got all wrapped up in a project and forgot to put it in the oven for dinner, this recipe is, at this moment, untested.  So I may come back and edit it tomorrow.  We shall see...

Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti

2 T. olive oil
2 ribs celery, diced
1 small onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
8 ounces dry spaghetti, broken in thirds
3 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup white wine (could substitute milk)
2 cups cooked chicken (I used ground)
1 t. Italian seasoning
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. season salt
2 c. grated cheddar cheese, divided

In a skillet over medium heat, saute the celery, onions, and bell peppers in the olive oil until onions are translucent, about five minutes.  Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to package directions, leaving it a little more al dente than usual. 

In a large bowl, combine next 7 ingredients (cream cheese through season salt).  Add vegetable mixture once it has finished cooking.  Stir in one cup of cheese.  Finally, mix in the spaghetti once it is cooked.

Pour mixture into a greased 8x8 baking dish.  Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 - 40 minutes, until hot and bubbly.
