I actually created this chicken spaghetti recipe out of desperation. My son Charlie was a picky eater when he was young, so I put together some of the things he likes. To this day, he says it's his favorite dish! —Ann Robinson, Dauphin Island, Alabama

"This is a great go-to weeknight meal and very kid-friendly. I added some diced green pepper along with the pimentos for some extra flavor."

"I made this for the first time tonight and my family ate it all and I had to make another batch! I used the rotisserie chicken you get from the deli and it turned out great. I decided to go with the pimientos and am glad I did. The only thing I changed was I increased the salt to a teaspoon. I am definitely making this again!"

"I used shredded chicken, from when I roasted a chicken and had leftovers. I also used Penne Pasta. I opted not to use pimientos. I added a dash of crushed red pepper. Also added garlic powder and onion powder. Had a five cheese blend on hand and used that. my 12 year old loved it."
