This was easy, different, and really tasty. I live in Italy and so it is difficult to come across a new pasta dish that we haven't already tried. I think I will try this one out on some Italians just to see what they say.
Certainly easy and edible, but not much flavor. I was disappointed in the lack of spice in the sauce (used Classico's brand) and should have added some crushed red pepper as it simmered. Could also have benefitted from some Italian seasonings with the browning chicken. Without the fresh basil it would have been a dud for me, but it was definitely a well-balanced, easy and inexpensive dinner.
This was quick, easy, and tasty. You can't go wrong with the simplicity of this recipe. We are very busy with the kids' activities so I am always looking for something to "whip up".
Was very simple to make, it only took me 30 minutes to prepare. My daughter, a picky eater, gobbled it right down and my husband told me it tasted excellent, like something you would eat in a restaurant!!
Really easy to make and it was delicious.
Made this without the onions for family's preference, added diced tomatoes instead. Couldn't find cavatapi noodles at my store, so I used hidden veggie twisted noodles, and the dish was great. My whole family loved it.
made this with my garden tomato sauce. Holy WOW it is good.
This is simple and delicious!!!! You cant go wrong making this dish, and you can tweek it with your own preferred spices, and ingredients. This recipe is a keeper!!
