chef #49: chicken casserole

this recipe is an old family favorite and i can't believe i've been posting recipes for over a year and haven't published it yet! it's super easy to make and very yummy. the only problem i have when making this is trying to decide what side to serve. the casserole has broccoli and pasta in it, so that throws out my go-to sides of mashed potatoes and green beans. i don't want my meal to be too redundant! when i made this casserole earlier this week i just served salad with it. what would you suggest?

4 c chicken, cooked & shredded
4 c cooked rotini
4 c uncooked broccoli florets
1/2-3/4 c mayo
1 c sour cream
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 T lemon juice
3 c grated swiss cheese

mix together all ingredients, reserving 1/2 c cheese. bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake for additional 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
