I made this dish as directed except I did leave out the pimientos. It was wonderful! My husband who isn't much of a pasta person LOVED IT! He went back for seconds and thirds! haha
This was divine. I made it with the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving.
I make this for my daycare kids and the absolutely love it. It is a favorite for all of them
So good, we loved it and will make again more often.
awesome taste ... I did add about a 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan to the chicken mixture but probably didn't need to ...
