I thought this was really good, and I liked the addition of the ground chicken. But with all that pasta, chicken and spinach, we thought it would have benefitted from a little seasoning beyond the salt and pepper. I'll definitely make this again but add a little basil or oregano. But it's definitely a "keeper". Thanks, quick meal. Made for Spring 2010 Pick-A-Chef.

Just made this for supper - but did not have any chicken so used a packet of bacon pieces instead. It went down well with my two hungry men! Thanks.

This is a quick yummy dinner. I was worried the sauce wouldn't be enough but it was the perfect amount. The dish isn't swimming in sauce but is just coated. I didn't have ground chicken so I just used ground turkey. I added a little more nutmeg as well. Will make again. Thanks.
