      I've made this a few times now, and I love it. I always skip the milk.

      I probably would give it 4 stars for my own taste by my picky 4 year old and my 2 and a half year old ate it so I HAVE to give it 5 stars. I forgot the milk like the other reviewer but it still came out great. I did make several changes due to what I had on hand and my picky family. I skipped the red bell pepper but still sauteed the mushrooms (which I had to puree) and onions (pureed aswell...picky, picky). I used dried oregano, substituted the penne for farfalle and used monterrey jack instead of cheddar and kraft parmesan crumbled cheese instead of the fresh. I also used about 300 g of frozen spinach like another reviewer. For the chicken, I used the frozen, precooked tenders I get from Costco to cut some of the prep time down. So, pretty much most of the ingredients were there, just in another form and it still turned out great. I still am in total awe that my 4 year old ate it...all of it except the chicken pieces, but that is amazing!

      Made this using my own white sauce instead of canned soup. It was good.
