Pasta Chicken Bundt #BundtBakers

This month event for Bundt Bakers our Host is Colleen, theme is " Untraditional Bundts " - wherein she asked us to show our creativity and share our ideas.   What recipe can you bake with a Bundt pan that isn't a cake?
Whenever I go for a party or to visit any one of family members or friends, mostly take something that is made at home.  When my friend invited me for a party at her home, asked her what should I bring.  She requested me bring a main course dish which children would enjoy.  

Since they are non vegetarians made a Pasta Chicken Bundt with layers of two different sauce, Homemade Pasta Sauce with Chicken and Cheesy Bechamel sauce. This was a hit and enjoyed by all.
