I was looking for a traditional baked spaghetti recipe but this sounded good so I gave it a try. It was GREAT! I used diced tomatoes and added some sweetener (too much) so next time I will be sure to use the Italian stewed tomatoes. In spite of the sweetness my husband and I both loved it. I am lookinf forward to making this again. I skipped the whole chopping, blending of the sauce ingredients and it was still great.

This was delicious, and I also skipped the blending process and took the suggestion to use Italian stewed tomoatoes. Great flavour, although found it a little too garlicky. Next time will use less garlic and more chicken, tomatoes and spinach!

Very quick, easy & delicious. I did make extra sauce as the other reviewers recommended so that the leftovers would be a little moister. I also cut up the spinach into smaller pieces and then folded everything together at the end in one big bowl before putting it the casserole since I made a big mess trying to do it the other way. :) Served it with French bread and a salad. Great recipe, derf.
