I found this on Kraft Foods -- sometimes I add some shrimp if I am feeling like a splurge, or I sub tuna or turkey for the chicken breast if I want lower fat and higher protein.

Easy and delicious, I love that it covers all the bases in one easy dish. I used homemade Italian dressing. It was great! I reduced the serving size for 2 of us, and we had some nice leftovers for the lunch next day. Thanks for sharing!

Made for Holiday tag. Super simple and a complete meal. Loved the creamy sauce with the chicken, pasta and veg.
