Reviews for Chicken and Broccoli Lasagna Rolls

"I cut the entire recipe in half, and made it exactly as written (except the pimentos...I didn't want them). IT WAS AMAZING!!! The only thing I noticed is that the outside of the shells got a little tough in the oven, but it is soooo good, I will be adding this to my PERMANENT KEEP list!"
"Following this recipe was a DISASTER! Before rolling the noodles over the mixture, I knew immediately that the filling was going to slide out the sides. There isn't anything in the mixture to make it stick together. After attempting the 2nd roll, I GAVE UP! I threw all the mixture back into a bowl & wrapped the noodles in plastic. I put it all in the fridge, fixed myself an "adult" beverage, cleaned up the MESS, and ate peanut butter crackers for dinner! Due to the expense of the ingredients I decided not throw it all down the sink. Today, I am going to grate a ton of cheese to ADD to the MIXTURE. I am also going to make another batch of sauce ( there definitely is not enough sauce following the recipe). I am going to eliminate the "rolling" & prepare the normal way of making a lasagna by doing in layers & laying the noodles flat. ALSO, several reviews mentioned the mixture being BLAND. I decided to eliminate the pimentos & used diced sun dried tomatoes instead."
"It looked pretty in the picture but our family thought it was flavorless."
"This was better than I had anticipated, based on my tasting of the filling as I was assembling it. As others said, this took a LONG time to make. And it does need the optional salt. I really like the concept and would like to use it with a better filling. The sauce was good though."
"It was good, but it took too long to prepare. Probably because I used fresh broccoli (and steamed it) and fresh bread crumbs (that I dried)."
