"I had a rich pasta dish similar to this at a restaurant," recalls Dana Simmons of Lancaster, Ohio. " It was so unique that i tried to duplicate it at home a few days later. This is remarkably close, but not as fussy because it uses ready-made ingredients rather than being made from scratch."

MY REVIEW

"This was such a great recipe! I didn't use as much spinach as the recipe called for, but I put enough in to look like the picture. My husband helped here and there and was impressed with how good and easy it was! I think next time I will cook the bacon ahead of time and save some drippings for the chicken just to cut down the prep time."

"I made this exactly by the recipe and I was kinda disappointed. The chicken didn't carry a flavor of its own just tasted like bacon. I don't know what happened but it didn't go over too big in our house."
