    I used whole wheat pasta, and added garlic and 2 10 oz. cans of chicken. I also subbed half the evaporated milk for 2% to save a few calories. Turned out GREAT!! I made the whole recipe and we have leftovers that will last us forever! :) - 4/15/09

  • Photo uploaded is from me! I used 4 oz of fat free cream cheese instead of evaporated milk, and a little pasta water to thin the sauce out! This was great, a neat trick I will use to make pasta and cut some calories, maybe try with spinach, peas, and zucchini next time for more veggies! YUMMMM! - 5/14/12

  • Really tasty and easy, even my husband (who doesn't particularly like veggies) liked it. I'm going to add some chicken breast to the leftovers for dinner tomorrow. - 6/6/11

  • This was hearty and delicious. Even my friend who hates veggies enjoyed this dish (jealousy ensued when he was able to go back for seconds, I had to save my leftovers for a yummy lunch the next day). - 2/27/11

  • I made this for dinner tonight, I didn't have skim evaporated milk,canned artichokes or Knorr pesto mix. I used whole grain pasta, reg evap milk and frozen artichoke halves w/frozen spinach. Added garlic, grilled chicken and topped with chopped tomatoes upon serving. Very yummy. - 6/20/10

  • This recipe is delicious. At first, when I was mixing the sauce into the pasta, I didn't think it'd be enough to coat the whole batch, but it ended up being great. Even better with parmesan cheese on top! - 3/25/10
