Have made this twice now, both times with broccoli instead of asparagus. I recommend adding as much as double the sauce.

I love the idea of this recipe, especially the vegetables and the cream cheese base. But for some reason, my sauce came out too watery - I wonder if this was a common thing amongst other recipe makers or maybe I didn't let it simmer long enough. Anyway, the only things I changed was added a small vine tomato (will probably use roma or cherry tomatoes next time around), and used a green pepper instead of red. It was an interesting taste.

very good and easy to make.. and suprisingly not bad for you since I used fat free cream cheese. But I did have to double the cream cheese and broth we like to have more sauce and I substituted the Penne and used Bow Tie past instead. And added red pepper just to spice it up a bit more. Yum!!

Made exactly as directed except used broccoli and shredded carrots instead of the zuchini and asparagus.

This was tasty. I changed up the vegetables a bit to use what I had in the fridge; green pepper, mushrooms, zucchini, green onions, tomatoes, and spinach. I also cooked the chicken and veggies in some oil instead of salad dressing as I had a dry italian pack and just added it in as I cooked them. The only other thing I did different was to add a dash or two of Worcestershire. Overall a very yummy, simple dish.

Add some Italian seasoning and you've got a great meal. Super quick and easy!

I didn't have all the veggies called for so I used some frozen peas and carrots instead. It still turned out really good. I like it both hot and cold!
