"Loved this recipe! Easy to put together: sliced 2 cooked chicken breasts and chopped up a couple of thickly sliced Black Forest ham pieces (skipped the bacon as I didn't have any) which I added to the sauce while the pasta was finishing up. The amount of sauce was good--not dry but not sloppy either. Didn't miss the bacon. A definite keeper!"
"This is a huge hit when our family visit us. I purchased a small ham and chunked it up instead of using lunch meat. It was delicious"
"The original recipe I am sure is great, but I lightened it up by using light cream, light cream cheese and Canadian bacon. I don't really measure the pasta so I just added what I thought would go well with the amount of sauce, also just threw in chicken, the ham and canadian bacon to what I thought looked good! My family enjoyed it and I loved the creamy sauce, I will make this again and bring it to a friend's house for them to enjoy!"
"this was very good- I'd definitely make it again."
"This was great my husband loved it he is hard to please. Added some chicken broth sauce was a little dry. Also added a cup of peas and carrots .will make again."
