  • I set out to make this recipe but something does not look right about the calorie count. A whole pound of pasta plus a whole cup of cheese plus two pounds of chicken all split 6 ways on serving size and only 300 calories per serving? When calculated again I came up with 525 calories. NOT low cal. - 8/4/14
