Add in one whole box of pasta, and one bag of frozen mixed vegetables. Cook until pasta is tender and drain.
Add into pasta/veggie mixture 1 ½ cups of shredded cheese. Once cheese has melted, add in one can of cream of Chicken soup and stir thoroughly.
Lightly coat with margarine a 9 X 13 inch baking pan/casserole dish and pour pasta veggie mixture in.
Spread mixture out evenly and add a few pats of margarine over the top of casserole.
Take remaining cheese and sprinkle evenly over the casserole and add a nice layer of the Panko bread crumbs and bake for around 20 minutes. You just need to melt the cheese and heat through.
