    HOLY COW! This is probably my favorite recipie. I live alone so I cut the recipie in half and had the other breast the next night, it keeps pretty well. I also used 3oz of cheese instead of 4 for the perfect cheesey coating! - 1/13/09

    My husband made this for dinner tonight and it was FABULOUS. I thought for sure being on a diet meant no more pasta or Italian food. We served it with whole wheat pasta. Being added to our regular menu rotation!! - 1/11/09

    My 13- year old made this tonight, after looking at the recipe over my shoulder on the computer and asking me to print it for her. It was fabulous! The taste was great, and very easy to make. Highly recommend- very filling for reasonable calories- we had with a garden salad. - 10/13/08

    This was so easy to make. The other's in my family do not like the sauce, so I made it plain for them. This will be an excellent dish to take to a pot luck supper. I will definately make this again. - 10/13/08

    I have one picky "I don't like pasta" eater, and she loved this dish.
    I will be adding this recipe to our monthly rotation of meals.
    Thanks for sharing.

    My family really loves this recipe. It also adds some spice and moisture to turkey breasts. REally breaks up the white meat monotony. - 6/2/09

    We found it very hard to serve as whole pieces so we cut up the chicken and served it that way. - 4/18/09

    I have made this several times and my wife was just saying the other day I'd have to make this again for suppers soon. We really enjoy this and highly recommend. I thought i'd already rated this about a year ago but it is worth raving about it again. - 4/10/09

    This one is one of my families favorite dishes. It so easy and tastes really good. The only thing different I did was add a can of crused stewed tomatoes to the pasta sauce. It is wounderfull with asprugus or green beans with a couple of spoonfull of pasta sauce mixed in. Its really good. - 4/9/09
