Nice light pasta and chicken dish! Very versatile and forgiving that children tend to love. This has become a family dish we make often. I have even served it for large crowds and dinner parties. I have been making it for more years then I would like to admit and I received it from my mother-in-law. Omit the chicken, add more broccoli and you have a nice vegetarian meal.

This was very bland. Tried to add alfredo sauce. It didn't help. Maybe someone else can think what to add. pattyjas

This was just okay for us. It seemed a little bland. I think I'd want to tweak it a little more when I make it again. Made for Spring 2009 PAC.
