Saucy and special, this hearty pasta works as well for Wednesday night as it does for a Saturday dinner with company. You'll love the rich combination of bacon, chicken, shrimp and fresh baby spinach. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 19, 2016

"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."

"Made this last night and really enjoyed it. I used half and half in place of whipping cream, but otherwise I followed the recipe as written. We will be fixing it again."

"Good recipe but when followed exactly it lacks flavor. It has potential and next time I would add more garlic, basil, and salt."

"Loved it using another reviewer's idea of creamed cheese and butter instead of heavy cream."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 17, 2015

"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!!"
