I used more chicken, and zucchini instead of squash. Also, I cooked the chicken before I added the zucchini. This left the zucchini nice and firm. I also cooked the tomatoes a bit before I added the spinach. I didn't add salt or pepper, and I tossed the noodles in to pick up the sauce. It was great! - 3/24/10
