    The pasta took way to long to cook had to keep adding milk so it would not burn and dry up all the sauce... after 25 mins on low pasta was only 2/3 cooked so my husband and I eat that! If I was to make again I would part boil the pasta in water half way.

    Definitely bland. I added more garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and some oregano. I just kept adding until it was tasty.

    A simple base for development. Definitely more spices and room to experiment. Low carbs too so a winner for us.

    Great way to use up leftover chicken. Added broccoli and peas to the chicken in the pan. Only issue is it was still a little bland (I even added extra of my own spices). Will make again but will be sure to add more seasoning.

    My husband was thanking God for this dish tonight! I added about 8 cloves of garlic, substituted 1 cup of cream, added about a cup of lebnah, and added some shrimp in with the chicken. It was delicious!

    Exceptionally good and quick! I added the cream cheese and shredded cheese. I also added a little spinach. Kids loved it too! Not much left over, so next time I will make a double batch!

    Very tasty and the instructions were very easy to follow. I didn't have any leftover chicken so I just used some chicken breasts with Italian seasoning. I also added some pepper to the pasta.
