What a fabulous recipe!!! <br/>This proved to be a real hit in our household....especially with the children, who don't really like creamy based sauces!!<br/>I used a mixture of chicken mince and chopped chicken, which worked really well...and only used red peppers, and skipped the celery.<br/>I recommend that the peas are totally defrosted, as mine weren't quite there, and therefore the end result was a little runny, but we didn't care, and it tasted absolutely wonderful.<br/>Served with salad and crisp garlic bread....totally delicious!!<br/>The children ( aged 6 and 8!!) even told me that I could definitely make it again...now that's an endorsement!!<br/>Made for PRMR.
Pretty much made this as given, thought I did dice the veggies pretty small & broke the spaghetti into about 3-inch pieces! Made with shredded chicken breast, this is a wonderful new way for me to serve both spaghetti & chicken! Thanks for sharing this great recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
I really didn't expect this to be that good since it started with jarred alfredo sauce that I am not so fond of. Well, it was so much better than that. My family was not so fond of the peppers but I am sure that if I added veggies that they enjoy more it would be a hit. I didn't use the frozen peas instead I added some shredded zucchini to the veggie saute. i used ham and we would like to try it with chicken. Made for Went to the Market Tag. YUM.
Yummy one dish meal and oh so suitable for freezing so, with this in mind, I doubled the recipe and I'm so glad to have done so. Like KITTENCAL, I just had to add lots of garlic and I used unsalted butter rather than margarine as I prefer it in cooking. Loved the peppers in this: I used different colours, which certainly added to the aesthetic appeal. I prefer to stay with the more Italian herbs so added rosemary, thyme and sage to the Italian herbs and omitted the cilantro which I prefer in more Asian-influenced dishes. I did, however, add some cumin (about 1/4 teaspoon) which I find blends really well with herbs, and I used freshly ground black pepper both because I love it and also because I've never actually bought white pepper! Perhaps it's the kinaesthetic grinding element that I just cannot resist? Very clear instructions, but I didn't break the noodles: bad feng shui! Thanks for a very tasty recipe, weekend cooker that, once my freezer stockpile has all been eaten, I'll certainly make again. On this occasion I made it with chicken, but I think that salmon or tuna would also be excellent. And I'd also like to add some minced onion and chopped leeks. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

very good, I add in 2 tablespoons fresh garlic when sauteeing and 2 teaspoons red chili flakes for heat, I omitted the cilantro and used butter in place of the margarine, next time I make this I would reduce the sour cream to half, I used fresh ground black pepper, I did not have any thin spaghetti so I used regular and that works out fine, thanks for sharing weekend cooker, my family enjoyed this!
