    Made this last night on the grill after marinating for about 30 mins. Omitted extra olive oil and pasta, and served hot on a bed of spinach. The grated cheese REALLY adds to the flavor. Delicious! Drizzled a little more dressing on top and served with brown rice. - 6/25/08

    I'm not so sure about this. I made it & there was no flavor in the pasta. It was so bland. The chicken was pretty good. I added Italian dressing to the pasta just so I could eat it. I would make the chicken again with different sides. - 7/10/08

    I enjoyed the chicken, but the pasta needed a little punch. I added some of the italian caesar dressing to the pasta to make a sauce, that made it very good! Thanks for the recipe. - 4/27/09

    This certainly doesn't taste like you are trying to lose weight. The only problem when something tastes so good is portion control! At first I was a bit worried what the caesar dressing would do when browned. It (along with the parmesan) acts like a really tasty crust. I will definitely make again! - 3/10/08

    This sounds scrumptous and I will definitely try this. The calories actually aren't high depending on the person's nutrition and workout plasns. For instance Spark's for my dinner have me on a 500 - 600 calorie plan on certain days. Don't let the calories scare you. In order to lose u have 2 eat! - 6/19/08

  • This sounds good but I agree with several comments made about the hi calorie & fat count - to cut down on it I will cook chicken on grill and not have to use oil and serve it on salad or bed of spinach & brown rice or salad, Thanks for the idea tho because chicken is our main protein in our house - 7/31/09

  • The chicken was delicious. Used boneless skinless thighs and came up with a calorie count of 133.4 per piece with 5.2 fat grams, 4.3 carbs, and 17 grams protein. Served on a bed of lettuce with plum tomato, red, onion, and lowfat parmesan peppercorn dressing made for a delicious low cal meal. - 7/30/09

    This sounds delicious, but in my life not worth the calories. I would make it using no oil and substitute a great big (really-really big), bowl of mixed salad greens w/mushrooms & tomatoes for the pasta. This would cut hundreds of calories off and still be filling. I put EVERYTHING on a green salad! - 6/19/08
