  • It was just not for us. If I make this again I will add canned peas instead of frozen. I will also use less noodles, it seemed to be all noodles. But it had a good flavor. - 10/18/11

  • The top got too hard. Hubby and I liked but kids didn't like it at all! - 4/5/11

  • This is real comfort food -- very satisfying. I added some worcestershire sauce and white wine to the sauce and put grated parmesan cheese on top for some added flavor. I recommend this dish as a savory way to serve leftover poultry. - 9/21/09
