Baked pasta dishes are the best! This one is a little different and really quite easy to make. It's a good way to extend chicken. I got this recipe from a Reader's Digest book called The How-To Book of Healthy Cooking....the title goes on. I wonder if the title comes in a condensed version? lol

I followed the directions and ingredients exactly but the flavor is a little flat. It completely filled a 9 x 13 pan but half of it went down the pig as my family didn't want any leftovers. We won't make this again. Sorry
