      This was so delicious! What a great use of the chive and onion cream cheese. My husband said it was five stars. I agree with TheBabblingHousewife that this could use a little more moisture. This dish was so yummy that I'm going to make it for a friend on Friday when she comes home from the hospital. But, I will add marinara or sour cream and garlic salt. I did not drain my diced tomatoes. I also seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper before cooking it. I also mixed the cheese in with the pasta as well as topped it after 30 minutes with more cheese. It only stayed in the oven for about 3 minutes the second time in. Yum yum. Thanks!

      I did modify a bit, using what I had on hand. I had regular fat free cream cheese so I added onion and garlic powders, some minced garlic...and after tasting and needing a little spice I added 1 T. hot sauce. I wanted to add moisture as well and just added a little of the pasta water. I used fresh spinach....It was wonderful.

      I added a small jar of Ragu Traditional Spaghetti sauce over the top, before topping with Mozarella shredded cheese....AWESOME! My family loved it!!
