"We all liked this dish. I used chicken and ground Italian turkey sausage. I only added 1/3 can of tomato and used part almond milk and whipping cream to cut back on some of the fat. I added some mushroom to make it a little bit more hearty. For added flavor, I added 1 tablespoon of pesto sauce. I paired this with a garden salad."

"I made this dish with 4 oz of cream cheese and two tablespoons of butter instead of heavy cream. Seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. I used everglades seasoning instead of sage. May need to add a little water if you make it this way. My new favorite dish!! YUM-O!!"

"Really good. I doubled the recipe. I used olive oil to saut? the shrimp and fry the chicken. We tasted flavor in this because the canned tomatoes had spices with them. If not for that, I think it may have lacked flavor. Definitely high calorie."

"This was really rich and yummy. I will admit I goofed and didn't get the shrip cooked when i picked them up. I just cooked them at home with salt an pepper. It was fine that way, but I think having them steamed at the store with ole bay or some other kind of seasoning will give this another layer of flavor. I also did add a bit of salt and pepper to the sauce it brought out the flavor of the tomato's . I liked the fact it went together quickly. I'm always looking for recipes that are like that especially when i have to work late"

"I liked this concept, however I found it to be a tad bland. The textures and consistency was spot on. I especially enjoyed the crunch of the bacon. I would suggest sautéing the shrimp in butter and garlic to add another layer of flavor. Seasoning is a must...I added salt and cracked pepper and that livened it up a bit! I'll try it again for sure cooking the shrimp in butter.butter makes everything better!"

"Fabulously delicious! I used 1/2 & 1/2 so the sauce was a little on the thin side, so I added twice the cheese! I did not have canned tomatoes, so i just used a handful of grape tomatoes, sauteed with garlic and onion. My husband is 100% Italian- he LOVED it! It tastes like a specialty pasta dinner you would get in a fine Italian restaurant! Two thumbs up...."

"Now THIS is my kinda meal! I would also love some nutritional info....but as with any of my taste of home favorites I am free to change it up a bit with turkey bacon, half-n-half etc. I made it exactly as it is listed and LOVED it. However due to my personal health problems will be skimming it down a bit next time."

"I have never rated what I haven't tried, but as my mouth is watering just reading this and I might have an answer for the nutritional question, I'm now "out on a limb." There is a recipe at the bottom of this one for chicken fettuccine, and it is the same except for using 1/2 &1/2 in place of whipping cream; also the addition of shrimp. Shrimp has no carbs. so this value would remain the same. If looking for other nutritional values just google it. This meal falls within my diabetic range for a meal. YEA me!"
