This is a lighter version of Chicken Tetrazzini. I found it in a Cooking Light pasta book. It is great for a low sodium diet too. It tastes really good for being a light dish. My family enjoyes this...even my 4 picky kids. The basil, oregano, and parsley are my additions. I have also made this without the Sherry and Pimientos with wonderful results. (1 1/3 cup servings)

It is a good recipe for a low cal and low fat. It was a little bland added more salt and pepper to the final dish and it had more zip. I will make it again.
