  1. Outstanding! This has instantly become my favorite pasta dish. I used perdue itailan seasoned chicken breast that I has in the freezer, added some asparagus and it was super delicious! Thank you very much for sharing this great ONE POT meal.
  2. This recipe is in a Betty Crocker book of ours (only change they have is to use chicken tenders - but the chicken breasts are so much better), and we make it all the time. It is wonderful! I was actually thinking of posting it myself, and then noticed that 'ratherbeswimmin' already has it here. If you're thinking about making this fun, easy! You won't regret it!
  3. I've made this twice -- the package of pesto is enough for 2 different nights -- and DH & I LOVE it!!! I used leftover baked chicken one night instead of sauteeing. And, my zucchini had gone bad by the time I made it, so I substituted mushrooms - which we actually prefer anyway -- this was SOOOO easy & delicious! thanks -- I'll make this often!
  4. Enjoyed this! I changed the proportions, using more ravioli, less chicken, and homemade pesto until it looked like enough. Easy and tasty. Thanks for sharing!
  5. This was really good! Like some of the other reviewers, I doubled the amount of pesto. This is easy and delicious. I will make it again.


  1. FIVE STARS all the way! I cooked the chicken and red pepper together in the skillet until both where browned. Removed them and added the ravioli and broth and cooked until tender. I then put the chicken and peppers back into the pan and added the rest of the ingredients. Oh.....and I used a large can of mushrooms instead of the zucchini. WE LOVED IT!!!!!! I haven't even mentioned what an EASY one skillet meal it makes. Hardly any clean up! Thanks so much for a fantastic recipe!!!
