skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

Simple and comforting. Recipe didn't specify whole wheat pasta, but descriptive sentance did. That's what I used. I added a bit more minced garlic, like a whole other clove and fresh parmesan. We ate every little bit. Sometimes, it dosen't have to be overdone to be a good recipe.
While this is good, I can't say that the family was wild about it. The fresh thyme could easily be substituted with basil or oregano if you prefer another flavor. I didn't have the fresh thyme, so I used a rounded teaspoon of pesto sauce for each sprig of thyme. Instead of using 3/4 c of salted pasta water to make the sauce, I used a smaller amount of chicken broth and then simmered it just a little to get it to thicken. We also didn't think it needed as much Parmesan cheese as the recipe states.
Really good! I'll make again; tweaked it with red pepper flakes and black pepper for heat.
I just made this for dinner and I really, really enjoyed it. Such a nice simple recipe. I did make 2 minor changes, I did not use the green onion because I didn't have any, and I just used some Italian seasoning in place of the fresh thyme. Delicious!
i made this last night and it was a 5 star meal and man it was a 5 star meal :}
GREAT use for whole wheat noodles. delicious, the parmesan really goes well with the sweet onions. Can't wait to make it again!
Wow! this is really good...I will make this often because of it's simplicity and it's great flavor.
Yummy when I cook with pasta it is always wheat or whole grains and I love what the onions do to the pasta. I also have added peppers to the slow cooking sauce so delicious..
