MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2012

Great! I made this many years ago and I'm glad I was able to find this recipe again.

MY REVIEW

By the way, I used rice, as someone suggested.

MY REVIEW

It would be a 5, except that I hated the taste of cooked avocado. I love fresh avocado, but the flavor totally changes after being baked. I will make this again with broccoli instead. It's not as exotic, but I think we'll be happier with it. The sauce was really yummy. I did not use any half and half in the sauce (I used an extra 1/2 - 1 c. milk), and I added a little chicken bouillon.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 20, 2010

I am NOT a fan of pasta casseroles, but I love chicken and avocados, so had to try this recipe with one "little" tweak: I used 2 cups of rice, cooked it according to package directions, and proceded with the recipe as written. I agree with other reviewer about omitting the marjoram and thyme, but will probably add sage or poultry seasoning instead.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 9, 2009

This is a really great recipe. I modified to meet my own style of cooking by doubling the sauce. And next time I will probably eliminate the thyme and the marjoram, only because that is my personal preference. My family and I really enjoyed this casserole.
