Reviews for Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken
Sort By :
"Delicious and easy. Not bland at all. I wish it had just a few more veggies. Next time I might add mushrooms in addition to the carrots and broccoli."
"This sounds like a nice 'basic' recipe, but I'll definitely 'tweak' it to our liking. I'll substitute the carrots for a large red bell pepper, and I'll use whole wheat pasta. I'm not sure how well basil will taste with chicken (since there are no tomatoes in this recipe), so I'll use a bit of rosemary & sage, instead. It also needs a little cracked pepper (white or black). I'll top the dish off with some finely chopped (fresh) Italian Flat Leaf Parsley, which I'll sprinkle over the cheese."
"Excellent! The whole family loved it!"
"This was easy to prepare and very tasty."
