I made this recipe up one night when I found a recipe calling for frozen pasta vegetable mix. This is much more economical and much tastier. Even my husband who does not like vegetables loves it.

This was ok, but I think the recipe is off. The amount of pasta is far too much for the amount of sauce which did not result in a "creamy cheesy" dish. I used 1 1/2 lbs of chicken, about 20 oz of pasta and 16 oz of California blend vegetables. The cheese sauce was very, very thick and barely coated everything prior to baking.<br/><br/>Changes that need to be made (in my opinion):<br/>1) no more than 1 bag of pasta, 12 or 16 oz<br/>2) needs more than 1/4 cup of milk, possibly increase to a full 1 cup?<br/><br/>Overall, this tasted good but definitely lacked in sauce. Although I added slightly more chicken and veggies (can't find 10 oz bags of that blend) I feel that adding the additional pasta was the biggest problem. This could be a 5 star if the right balance of cheesy, saucy goodness is found!!!
