    Made this several days ago when we had a couple of dinner guests & it was a terrific hit, though next time I might just opt for the more easily assembled small shell pasta dish & use some of the shredded chicken that I always have in the freezer! Thanks for sharing a great recipe keeper! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
