This was just okay. The color of the sauce turned out to be dark orange and it was not appetizing looking and it wasn't the greatest tasting. If I was to make again, and not sure that I would, I would go very light with the pasta sauce, so as to try to keep a lighter color.

Simple recipe that goes a long way. I forget to get the pasta sauce that the recipe calls for so I made a few changes. I kept the pasta and chicken seperate. And, I added a handful of shredded cheddar cheese to the pasta/broccoli mixture as well as the cream cheese. Pretty Darn Tasty!

We have picky eaters at our house and this recipe did the trick for a quick dinner!

I used Caesar dressing instead of the roasted red pepper and Parmesan (it's what I had on hand). I also didn't have any pasta sauce so I used a can of tomato sauce and a can of Italian style diced tomatoes. It was tasty! My family devoured it! Will definitely make again.

So delicious! After I made the sauce, I loved it so much that I added extra cream cheese... the sauce ended up looking almost like a vodka sauce, just perfect!

This was so quick and delicious. I was doubtful about the broccoli, but the end product is so tasty. I recommend it for any busy cook. I did use regular cream cheese that I had left over from the holidays, but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly.

FANTASTIC!!! I followed the recipe just as it was written, and it turned out perfect! My 3 year old and 7 year old loved it! I can't wait to make it again!
