A solid four stars - I have to admit I made some changes but they seem fairly insignificant. I let my son pick the pasta, so he picked seashells, and instead of cooking the chicken, I used meat I picked off last night's roasted birdie. The MAJOR change was that I used plain canned tomatoes and seasoned them myself with salt, pepper, oregano, basil and garlic. I generally don't like the flavor of the "flavored" canned 'maters so I never buy them. Kept to the heart of the recipe though, and it was great. Really really good. I would recommend seasoning the chicken as you cook it, just as a general cooking rule. Salt pepper and garlic is all you'd really need and would add another layer of flavor to the recipe.

Small changes due to what I had on hand. I used elbow macaroni and because I couponed it for REAL cheap, I used Philly's Italian Cheese and Herb cooking cream (the whole stinkin' container). I did spice my chicken before cooking it (onion powder, garlic powder, basil, oregano, pepper) and I did saute some fresh sliced onion, minced garlic, chopped red bell pepper and sliced baby bellas (had to use them--so why not throw it in?) in the skillet after I added the chicken. Had I NOT spiced my chicken and used a flavored cooking cream, it would have been bland. I think it still could use some oomph, like maybe some chicken broth instead of plain water, fresh chopped sweet tomatoes and more spices so I might play with the recipe still. I think it could be a great little skillet meal. For those of you who have spotted the cooking cream in your supermarket, this is a good way to use it.

This was pretty good. It just crossed over the line from being too bland, tho. Next time I think I will add garlic and/or onions to kick it up a bit. I cooked the chicken in a tbsp. of butter and sprinkled it with seasoning salt.

This recipe was awesome! I tweaked it a little..I used a little extra bacon, fresh garden tomatoes seasoned myself, fresh garlic, fresh parsley and I used 1/4 cup water to ensure the sauce stayed thick and flavorful. My family loved it!!

Loved this. I was looking for a pasta dish with chicken, bacon, and tomatoes, and this fit the bill. I followed the recipe exactly except I used regular pasta and threw in an extra slice of bacon. I think it would be great with a couple dashes of hot pepper flakes, or a couple sprinkles of cayenne pepper, just to give it a little extra kick. The leftovers were fantastic. Thanks!

This was good the 1st day and excellent the second. 2 cups of uncooked pasta enough. I sauteed 1/2 frozen red pepper, added 3 cans of diced tomatoes 1 brick of cream cheese. Mixed the 1/2 cup water with 2 Tbsp corn starch. It seemed to need thickening. This is going in the rotation file because we ALL really liked it.

Really good. We will make this again. Hubby even liked it.

I loved this, it was as easy as spaghetti, and so much better! Three of my kids were not crazy about it, but they do not like "chunky" tomatoes. I may just use spaghetti sauce next time, and I'm sure they will like it. My 15 yr. old has added it to her 'learn to cook' list, and my husband said he wanted it often!
