    We had this for dinner last night & loved it. The only change I will make is next time adding a little garlic to boost the flavor. - 4/29/09

    I would guess that it's 2 cups UNCOOKED pasta. Also, I'd put the onions (and country crock) in with the Chicken and grill the onions before adding any cheeses. And to echo previous comments, garlic is a NECESSITY in this recipe. - 5/11/09

    This was delicious! I just made it for lunch. I have a habit of cooking several chicken breasts for the week so I just shredded two of them into the sauce - saved me some time. - 4/28/09

    COUNT THE CALORIES!!!!!
    It sounded WAY too good to be true ... and it was. This recipe, using Spark's calculator, is 592 calories per serving -- Yikes!!! That's a whole lot more than 338.
    But I'm sure that taste-wise it's a definite FIVE STAR!!
