    LifeIsGood's Note:

    I love this meal for it's ease and down home goodness. You can make this one dish meal in less than 30 minutes. It's pretty too! You could substitute chopped carrots for the red pepper if you'd prefer. It reminds me of chicken pot pie without the 'pie'. Comfort! It makes A LOT so you can serve half of it and freeze the other half for a quick dinner some other night. From Simple & Delicious courtesy of Danette Forbes. *NOTE: this recipe does not include many spices, etc.. It is meant to be a comfort food type of recipe. If you enjoy spice, go ahead and throw some in!! This recipe is also versatile in terms of what veggies you like. Have fun with it. :)

      Extremely easy, quick and delicious. I halved the recipe very successfully. Bought bowties especially for this dish and discovered I really enjoy this type of pasta :) Liked the red pepper in this, both for presentation and taste, and added some sliced mushrooms. A real keeper, thank you, LifeIsGood! Made for PRMR tag game.

      This is okay. It's quick to put together, and makes a lot, but the trade off is that it's a little bland. I think I will try it again, and put some additional Italian type spices in, and a little bit of cayenne. Also, I think it would be better with shredded chicken rather than chunks. This is a good base to start with.

      What a great dish !! I made 1/2 recipe and used red peppers and carrots (I'm not a big fan of peas), but wish I had read the reviews first...I would have put some broccoli in there. Great flavors - we didn't find it bland at all, but creamy and very flavorful. Even my picky DD had a bigger serving than her dad and me. I used Tinkyada GF brown rice fusilli pasta - I have not seen GF bow ties at the groceries I frequent. I will definitely make this again - it was so easy and would be great for a weeknight dinner when you're crunched for time. Thanks for posting LIG - made for ZWT8 Aus/NZ and the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys.
