  • Incredible!
    YUM! My fiance and I LOVED this! I made a few alterations: I grilled the chicken and seasoned it with pepper and sage, and I cut it into strips before adding to the pasta. I also omitted the tomatoes since I don't like them. Overall this was a wonderful dish and I will definitely make it again! - 2/22/09
