I made this recipe just the other night. It tasted wonderful! It has just the right mixture of flavorings. It truly tastes like it could be served at an Italian restaurant! My husband, who is pretty picky, even liked it. I omitted the mushrooms, because he doesn't like them, and it still turned out good. I also didn't use Italian style tomatoes or paste. I just added about a tsp. more Italian seasoning. I cooked the noodles and chopped the veggies the night before, so it was a breeze to just throw everything in the crock pot and go on w/ my day! Hope you all enjoy!

It was good, in that it was home cooking, made in the crock pot, and easy to prepare, but seemed to lack something...this would not be put into our menu rotation. Kids (2 & 5 yrs.) did not like the looks of the meal and the vegetables. Prepared as above, the chicken was dry. To avoid this, I would suggest cutting the chicken into larger pieces, and possibly try layering the ingredients differently in the crock pot.
We used canned mushrooms instead of fresh and added black olives. I agree with Michael Stok that the chicken was dry when prepared according to recipe. However we liked it and would make again. We used plain stewed tomatoes and paste, if you do this you will definitely need alot more than 1 tsp of italian spices.
