Italian Noodle Medley

"I just found this on the back of a package of whole wheat pasta, and my husband recognized it right away. Turns out this is just like something his mom used to make him when he was growing up! I've posted it for safekeeping. Any noodles can be used in place of the whole wheat curly noodles."

  1. This was very good & so quick & easy. I used chicken, but think it would also be good with ground beef. Thanks for posting!
  2. This was quick, easy and both of my boys ate it so I love it even more!! :) Made with leftovers of recipe#33671, jarred vodka sauce and penne pasta and it was very tasty. This will be a good change from chicken salad when we have leftover chicken, will be making this again!! Made for PAC Spring 2010.
  3. This was a good, basic, easy recipe. I loosely followed the recipe meaning that I didn't follow the measurements of the recipe. I used a 13 ounce box of dreamfields pasta, a bottle of ragu, 2 cups of cooked chicken that I had in the freezer, 2 cups of mozzarella and just tossed in some parmesan. My kids enjoyed this but thought it needed some spices. We thought it could use some italian seasoning and some pepper. Quick and easy dinner.
  4. I have to agree that this is a quick, tasty meal. I'll be making this again. Thanks!
  5. Quick-Easy-Tasty! This is as basic as it gets for 'comfort food'. Loved it!! Thanks!
