We used 1 3/4 C. Elbow noodles (it's what I had), no oil, added a 15 ounce can of tomato sauce, several dashes of red pepper flakes, halved the chicken (that's all I had), no salt (it was in the tomato sauce), no black pepper, added a generous tablespoon of Italian seasoning, and omitted the cheese. It was AWESOME. My husband thought it was great this way for summer, but thought that in the fall/winter it would be awesome just as is in a casserole with the cheese melted on top (like a baked ziti). Thanks for the inspiration!
We found this pretty bland. Added a can of spagetti sauce to kick up the flavour. Was much better.
I had some leftover chicken to use up so made this for lunch. I used Dreamfiled pasta and followed the rest of the recipe as written. I did add the optional cheese except I used an Italian blend as that is what I had on hand. This was a good, quick lunch.
