"Amazing! I used 2 chicken breasts and 3 brats (Johnsonville brand) in this dish. The brats gave it a little kick. So good.--I couldn't stop eating it! :) I put the sauce over the top of the pasta which was already on the plate, so that way I could regulate how much sauce I had with the pasta."

"This was very good and easy to make. I think I will leave out the sausage next time. The sausage gave it a little bit of an unusual flavor."

"Yummy! I've made this twice - I only used 1 jar of alfredo sauce and I made the recipe the night before and then baked it at 350 degrees for 40 minutes (covered)."
