  • Nice flavors. If I'd realized there would be so much pasta, I'd've used the entire family pack of chicken, but as it were, it was a lovely meal. Thank you for posting it. - 9/14/11

  • Great stuff. Made it with loads more garlic and feta instead of mozzarella. Made way more than 6 servings. - 3/3/09

  • Very easy to make, and the veggies are great! I liked the balsamic vinaigrette mixed in with the tomatoes, and probably would have put even more tomatoes in, too. I made it with whole wheat pasta, which worked well. Hubby loved it too--only challenge was to keep the different parts warm at mixing - 11/3/08
