Reviews for Chicken Pasta Primavera
"My family and I enjoyed this very much.... I doubled the portions and did as others suggested and used evaporated milk with 2 tsp of flour to thicken it. I added a chicken bouillon, onion powder and Italian seasoning to the chicken while it was cooking as well.....Delicious!"
"I made this tonight and it was very good. I will make it again. Next time I may substitute a California blend bag of vegetables that has broccoli, carrots, snap peas and califlower."
"Made this tonight and was pleasantly surprised. Very tasty and simple to prepare. I didn't have heavy cream so took the suggestion of others and used evaporated milk and it still tasted yummy. Glad it helped to lessen the calorie count a little too. I might try adding a little extra sauce next time so it's a bit creamier. I wIll definitely be adding this to the rotation."
"One of my favorite go-to meals. It is so easy to keep most of the ingredients on hand."
"My family and I love this recipe. I have made it often."
