MY REVIEW

I would give this a 5 star with a few alterations. I doubled everything in the recipe except the chicken so have a bit of sauce for the pasta. I also added 2 slices of cheese to make it creamier. Excellent flavor and even with the cheese very good for you. Took 50 minutes from start to finish and will def make this again!
