Top Review by HokiesMom

Yet one more fabulous pasta dish presented by Lainey! Loved all the veggies in this. Only slight change was I used snow peas instead of regular peas just for fun! This would be wonderful even without the chicken for a meatless dinner! Loved it completely! Thanks Lainey for sharing in Gimme Five tag game.
