DH can't get enough of this; I can't believe that the noodles cook in the same pot! Toula Patsalis hits a home run in "The Pressure Cooker Cookbook."

We will definitely make this again.Fast and tasty! Good comfort food but not much fat in it. I used slightly under 16 oz. noodles, and I still ended up having to add more broth. And I used boneless skinless thighs. I give it 4 of 5 because it's just solid comfort food, nothing to really make it that special. But good and as I said, it will be made again.
