Always a crowd pleaser, and kid pleaser too! And yes, another Shanna's favorite. (My daughter loves my cooking) :)

This was really yummy, but I felt that it was a little too rich for me, so I'll change it the next time by using 1/2 n 1/2 instead of cream. I decided to grill my chicken instead of sauteing, then sliced thin and added with the cooked pasta. I may also try different cheeses, just for fun, gorgonzola comes to mind at the moment. Overall, very good, and I'll definately make again.
