I think this recipe is falling into the "bland" abyss because there is no binding agent to help create a "cohesiveness" amongst all the ingredients. The sauce, noodles and chicken all slide around together, but never create a "dish". Healthy doesn't have to mean taste-free. I would make a pesto from almonds (Or purchased, lol) and add that right after cooking but while hot. You don't need to add a ton like a sauce, just enough to boost flavor and make the ingredients "marry". You'd be boosting the protein, adding a "good" fat, and better nutrients as well. Secondly, I would add grated carrots to the mix. The carrots will add a pleasant sweet to compliment the savory. Carrots also help to cut the acidity of the tomatoes. It's a good basic foundation, it just needs some personality. Don't give up on it yet :)
