"This recipe is easy and fast, with ingredients that we almost always have on hand. Canned tomatoes can be substituted for the fresh tomatoes. We serve this with warm bread and salad. It tastes great!" — Lisa

Italian-style salad dressing
cooked and cubed chicken
grated Parmesan cheese
This is a great basic recipe! You can customize it to what you have on hand! I sauteed some chicken chunks in the olive oil with some chopped onion ,fresh sliced mushrooms and minced garlic in a skillet. I then added the Italian dressing and some grape tomatoes. I added basil and parsley with some Pecorino Romano cheese. I used Whole Wheat linguine because that is what I had on hand. After I tossed everything together I added some pine nuts all I can say is yummy!!! My family just loved it! Thanks for the recipe!
I wasn't a big fan of this. Left a strange after taste in my mouth and I followed the directions to a "T".
This is a great dish for everyone in my family and a ajor hit for my finiky two and four year old girls.
What a WONDERFUL recipe. I LOVED it and so did my husband. It was good served hot, and I'll bet the leftovers will be good cold also. Elegant enough to serve to guests. I sprinkled garlic powder and meat tenderizer on two chicken breasts and cooked them until brown, then cut into chunks. I also sauted 1 cup of chopped RED onions in the "salad dressing mix" and also added a small can of sliced black olives. Excellent! Two thumbs up and 5 slices of bread!
Absolutely wonderful!!! I add fresh tomatoes. Didn't have Italian-style dressing, so I used Italian Olive Salad. We'll have this again.
I was in the mood for pasta, but very lazy to cook. It was very quick to make. I added extra parmasean cheese. All in all a good quick and easy meal.
This was a great way to serve spaghetti without marinara (which I'm not so fond of). It was very good, even without chicken. We'll make this again for sure!
I cooked up a med rare sirloin and cubed it instead of using chicken. It was very tasty. Thanks!
