Great dinner. I made it last night and everyone liked it. I doubled the recipe and it turned out great. I like that it uses crushed tomatoes instead of spaghetti sauce- makes it taste lighter. Good dish!

You were right; simple and easy describes this recipe! It's great too though! You can use this to sneak veggies into the kids; I threw in some leftover broccoli rabe. I used turkey in place of chicken too. This was wonderful; it'll make great leftovers too. Thank you!
