Use this same water for cooking the noodles (according to the pkg. directions) . Drain the noodles, do not rinse, and set aside.
In a large fry pan, melt the butter and sauté the onions and mushrooms until tender. Add the flour, milk, water chestnuts and olives. Add cheese, chicken, veggies, noodles, and sauce and place in a large greased baking casserole.
Season to taste, with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Cover and bake in a 350 oven for 20 to 30 minutes.
