    QueenB3143's Note:

    This is one of my favorite recipes from a restuarant in MI called Santino's. During my school years this was the staple at all "sports-teams" banquets and always a classic at large get-togethers. After the restaurant closed, somehow a family friend somehow created the recipe! I'm thrilled to be able to recreate it at home. A very easy, very tasty dinner. Enjoy! UPDATE: I'm not saying this is the exact recipe used at the restaurant, I was just giving it credit for tasting VERY similar to how I remember it tasting and is super simple to put together for dinner.

      I loved making this recipe for my family. I know this is "Santiono's Explosion" because the recipe was published in a major newspaper. The reporter gave credit to the owner-chef and the owner-chef gave permission for the public to make it.

      This was just okay for the monsters and I. I think instead of mixing the butter with the cheese and seasonings next time, I'll pour it over the pasta/chicken/broccoli mixture and then toss that with the seasonings to coat it better. Made for PAC Spring 2009.

      This is a yummy recipe-whether or not it is the 'actual' recipe from the restaurant. We really enjoyed it! Thank you so much for posting!! My 5 stars is for the taste-not the authenticity of a recipe. I was looking for something different to make with chicken and broccoli and this hit the mark right on! I used linguine instead of angel hair (broken in 3 parts before cooking) and I liked the texture it gave.
