      If you like your healthy pasta dishes flavorless, this is the recipe for you. That being said, the basics are there. So I will attempt to make this again with my own modifications. I'll probably add some spices like oregano and a small amount of red pepper flakes to add just a touch of warmth. I'm all for reducing sodium but I need flavor too. I'll probably squeeze a some lemon juice to brighten the flavors I add or just use regular chicken stock. If you read the labels, chicken stock typically has less sodium than chicken broth anyway....and WAY more flavor. You do your own thing, but whatever you do, don't make this according to recipe and expect it to taste different than the box your pasta was packaged.
