Love it!! I always add extra garlic!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 6, 2012

the 40 minute time is a bit optimistic, it assumes you have a pot of water boiled already for the pasta the chicken is already cooked. I wish recipes would assume I am starting from uncooked stuff, so the times are more realistic. It's a very good dish, even with regular parmesan cheese and reheats very well for leftovers.
