Have at last made this recipe. I used 1 cup of dried macaroni and not quite the full amount of chicken and added some Tuscany seasoning. It was quite tasty but did not need all the pasta - personal taste.

Really good and quite different from anything I've done before. I ended up adding a LOT of salt and pepper to the finished product, so next time I'll really up the spices. I omitted the carrot and pepper, added extra onion and chopped broccoli instead, and didn't have parsley so I tossed in about 1/2 tablespoon herbs de province while the onion was cooking. I used the full amount of pasta and probably a little more parmesan cheese. I also put three leftover slices of meunster on top while broiling it. Very filling, inexpensive dish that makes a pretty presentation. I'll be playing around with this recipe while the sale-price eggs last!
