I love this recipe! I have been making this for about 4 years already. I got this from the ragu jar and the kids just love it. I also add mushrooms to it and Mozzarella Cheese.
I made this using chicken breast cutlets and light parmesan alfredo sauce (to save calories), and also left out the tomatoes, so I don't feel I can give this a rating. We enjoyed it, but to me, it seemed like something was missing...and I don't think the tomatoes would have done it for me! Perhaps my lighter sauce just wasn't as strongly flavored as classic is. I also had a problem with my chicken being a bit dry, but again, that's probably my fault - the cut was pretty thin. This was a creamy treat though, and I loved the touch of the parmesan cheese sprinkled on the chicken!
