This was good, though a little bit bland. However, I ran out of breadcrumbs so I crushed up some ceaser croutons to make the topping, and it had a great flavor!! Next time will try making with different cheese in the sauce, and more chicken for more flavor. I also increased the pasta to a little less than two cups, as one cup was not enough.
