I used wacky pasta because that is what I had. Next time I will omit the broth and add a can of cream of something soup. Needed more seasoning also. Maybe some herbs.
I wasn't impressed with this recipe. As others have said, it didn't have much flavor. With only the chicken stock added in the skillet, I wanted a more creamy sauce so I added some heavy cream. That helped but I wouldn't make this again.
I must admit that when I mixed it together, I didn't think it was going to be a keeper. I didn't have frozen peas so I substituted a can of them instead. Other than that, I followed the recipe. My hubby & I both thought it was quite good... 4-5 star recipe.
I have made this many times. We really enjoy this recipe because it does not require canned soups. It is like a very healthy chicken soup.
This tasted like everything in the kitchen sink poorly thrown together. It needed creaminess to it, and more cheese.
