"Tasty. Only complaint was that I had to cook for what seemed like forever to get the carrots tender. I eventually covered the pan because they just kept tasting crunchy every time I tried them. Will make again!"

"The flavor was great but I wish there was something to hold the pasta together. The liquid in the chicken was just soaked up by the pasta. I'd like something a little creamier. Will adapt this next time"

"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."

"We really liked this recipe and that's saying a lot considering my husband doesn't normally like pasta dishes. I left the carrots out since my husband doesn't like them."
