This was a great recipe! Even picky teenagers and little kids ate it! Little did they know it had carrots and spinach! We fed 9 people and still had enough leftovers for lunch the next day. This is a definite keeper. Thanks, NurseDi for sharing this!

What a hit! My dad, who is a real meat and potatoes kind of guy, even asked to take the leftovers home!!! It's perfect when you want something ready to throw in the oven when you get home. I used precooked chicken to make this recipe even easier and substitued whole wheat noodles for added fiber.
