    So easy to make and delicious to eat, the final result looks impressive. Definitely keeping this recipe!

    Only used a small amount of oil and didn't use wine, still tasted good!

    Made this for company and everyone loved it. I used stewed tomatoes with green chilies and it had a kick to it. - 8/10/07

    I really like the combination of flavors. I dumbed this down a bit to make it quick, less vegi chopping. I used Rotel instead of regular tomatoes and left out the green pepper.I also used the dried italian seasoning herb mix instead of the herbs as well. This recipe is a keeper! - 8/1/07

    I used brown rice penne pasta and chicken that was pre-cooked (reduced cooking time by a few minutes). It was easy and full of flavor. We will make this again and again!! - 8/1/07
