    It was great! Delicious and super easy to make. I doubled the amount of cheeses, next time may even triple the amount (the cheesier the better with my family)

    This recipe was very quick and easy to make. We replaced the chicken with italian sausage and it turned out great!!

    Came out great. Cooked up the chicken in a pan after tenderizing it and rubbing some Italian seasoning into it. I also added some extra cheese too because cheese... but all in all I was very happy with the result. Better than any baked ziti I’ve had in a restaurant recently. But definitely do the chicken with the Italian seasoning. The extra flavor took it over the top.

    This was very tasty. I did modify it s but because we are trying to cut carbs. I used zoodled butternut squash and private selection rose sauce. I also added a bit of onion because I needed to use it up and didn’t add basil so I guess it’s a completely different recipe almost lol. But it worked out great.

    Great! I added extra cheese once it was served on a plate

    Great! Didn’t use that sauce, I used prego sauce and added some spices to it! Also probably add a little more Parmesan but who doesn’t love cheese lol

    Wow. What a wonderful twist on a classic pasta dish. I prepared penne pasta via al dente and added the cooked bird and marinara sauce. Layering the ingredients with a 6 cheese Italian blend and getting straight baked at 375 degrees it turns out 🔥. Get your family straight pitted by serving this dish with garlic bread. - Chef Emerson

    We loved this recipe, it will be made again. Next time we are going to add some mushroom bell pepper red and green just to kick it up a notch but the recipe was perfect just as it states.
