This was very good. I used Di Parma 4 cheese for the pasta sauce and left out the spinach. I have very picky eaters and they all ate this.

Excellent! Added fresh garlic, parsley, oregano, and crushed red pepper flakes to kick the flavor up a notch. My husband absolutely raved over this. Thanks!

Easy and quick to make and was good. I think the chicken should be cooked with more just just the basil add first for more flavor.

We love this recipe! So easy to make. I usually just get a bag of mixed italian cheeses and add a few more spices. It turns out great!

i love this recipie, it is delicious, but it needs a larger pan than what is called for. i could not fit everything in an 8" baking dish. i needed a 9x13.
