  • I also boiled the chicken and used Rotel - great substitution! Only 7 WW points for a very filling serving; will make again, and again, and again.... - 5/4/08

  • Cheese has a lot of sodium, so if you're watching your sodium intake skip the cheese sauce and top your pasta with red sauce. It's better for you anyway. - 4/13/08

  • I haven't made this yet, but it just sounds delicious! I don't know if I will use all of the 16 oz. of l/f velvetta ... I might use some other lighter cheeses, such as parmesan in with it. BUT it sounds great!!! TY!!! ~Nomi - 4/2/08

  • Sounds great, but personally I boil the chicken and then cook the noodles in the chicken broth for more flavor. I also like to add rotel and mushrooms for a kick. - 4/2/08

  • Wow! This sounds so great, can't wait to try it. However, I'm curious to know where all the sodium is coming from? It very high in sodium but I can't pin point the source. Could it be the chicken? Cheese? - 4/2/08
