    Turned out really delicious! We let it sit for about 12 minutes to allow it to thicken, and it did. Definitely added a little extra Parmesan cheese, as well.

    The flavor was awesome but for some reason mine was soupy! Husband and I loved it.

    So yummy! But to be honest, I don’t think I would use as much cream cheese next time, maybe heavy cream instead

    Super easy and pretty good. I don’t know that the chicken added anything. Next time I might make this with some mushrooms and maybe ground sausage.

    It was delicious! I added onion for extra flavor. I cut back on the amount of cream cheese and it was still creamy enough.

    Very tasty! I doubled the recipe but only did 1.5 the amount of cream cheese. Next time I’ll add a little sautéed onion for extra flavor.

    Yummy! I sautéed the chicken first and let cool and then continued with recipe to give it some color. Definitely used less broth, probably around 26-28 ounces since chicken was already cooked. Overall delicious!

    Really good, my husband devoured it. Next time I would reduce the cook time because the pasta was not el dente

    It was missing something for me. It needed more garlic and maybe a little pepper and some heavier cream sauce, BUT, then i just realized I missed adding the cream cheese to it, duh!!!!!! I think with more garlic and season to taste black pepper it would’ve been aaahmazing with an H.

    My boyfriend LOVED this dish. I couldn't find the pasta suggested so I used bowtie instead, and my family loves spice so I added some cayenne. It was very watery but that was probably because it was so good we couldn't wait for it to cool before we ate it. Overall is would definitely suggest this dish for a quick work week meal!

    I made this a few day’s ago for my family and they loved it! My husband asked me to add it to our family’s favorite recipe list. My 35 year old daughter said that it tasted just like a restaurant quality dish! High praise from picky people! Anyway, I thought about one of the reviews, where they said they didn’t care for the sun dried tomato flavor. Several of my family members aren’t crazy about tomatoes. Here’s what I did: I only had 16 oz of whole wheat penne pasta, so I added a small can of tomato sauce. After that, I filled that can about half way with water. I diced my sun dried tomatoes into small bits. I added one tablespoon of sugar. I used a fresh bulb of garlic from my garden. I used 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning. After the instapot showed my recipe was done, I stirred the pasta. I then decided to add a jar of Alfredo sauce, because I felt it needed more creaminess, since I’d used more pasta. I then turned my instapot back in for one minute, to heat the sauce. It turned out amazing!! Note: I am a vegetarian, but my family is not. I used vegetarian broth instead of chicken broth. While my instapot was cooking, I sautéed my cubed chicken, that I had sprinkled with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. My family just added the chicken to their plates, when the recipe was dished up! Thank you for an amazing recipe! Sorry this is sooooo long!😀😋😋😋😋

    Was not a fan of the sun dried tomato flavour and found the dish too salty. Good recipe otherwise!

    It turned out great! I made it in a normal pot, and it worked out well, but I would recommend using less water/pouring out some of it. delicious!

    Delicious, healthy and so easy to make! Made this multiple times now. Subbed Greek yoghurt instead of the cream cheese to make it even healthier

    Used dairy free products instead (plain almond cream cheese& vegan Parmesan cheese) came out GREAT!! Just had to add a lot of Italian seasoning, black pepper, and garlic powder at the end for more flavor. Definitely keeping this recipe as it’s so fast and delicious and easy clean up !

    restaurant quality!!!
    Very bland unfortunately. I used a tb of italian seasoning, and a tad more garlic. It still wasn't enough seasoning for all the pasta. Recipe needs work. Cook time was perfect though. Probably won't be making it again.
