    Taste was good, but texture was off. I followed the recipe and the sauce seperated. It was not a creamy sauce.

    This was shear perfection. I will definitely make again. I used extra red pepper flakes because my husband likes spicy foods.

    My boyfriend loved it and said it was restaurant quality. I added some Italian seasoning.

    Overall tasty! I doubled the recipe, and I did cut up the chicken into slightly smaller pieces, also added more red pepper flakes and lots of garlic and used whole wheat penne (just trying to be a little healthier!) I think next time I will use an Italian blend of cheeses in place of just mozzarella.

    I also felt that this was lacking some color but more impotantly, taste. I used some extra garlic, paprika, and salt to no avail. It certainly wasn't a bad recipe, but I probably wont be making it again.

    It felt like it was lacking in both substance and color. I used a smoked paprika instead to give a an extra punch as well as some brocolli and carrot to give it a little more color. I also added some chives at the end to give it a little but of and onion hit. That made it a lot nicer for me personally but you milage may vary. I would also reccomend sauteeing the chicken in the oil from the tomatoes, it adds a nice depth of flavor.

    Good. I made the mistake of using fresh tomatoes which kinda ruined the texture.

    it was sooo good. i agree with others on the fact it was a little bland, so Season season season! i added onion pepper, pepper, salt, garlic salt, added alot of flavor. also added extra hot red flakes, i never would of thought to add those, i now add them to alot of my dishes as me and my man love spicy. so glad i found this app. we are eating better than ever! will def make this again next time going to try a diff protein like turkey sausage or shrimp.

    I absolutely loved this I used chicken thighs and it was very tender and moist. I also used extra red pepper flakes to add more kick to it. My husband loved it so much he ate leftovers for 2 days.

    The cheese didn’t mix very well and became clumpy. The whole recipe lacked flavour.

    Always a quick and yummy recipe I use cayenne pepper instead of flakes because I can have the seeds. Still maintains the flavor.
