I'm tired at the end of the workday, so fast meals are always appreciated. I came up with this pasta dish one night using ingredients we happened to have on hand. I knew it was a success when my husband, who doesn't even like chicken, couldn't stop eating it!

MY REVIEW

Delicious! I made one mistake by simmering for 10-12 mins instead of 6-8 with the lid on. I am an experienced cook and this really should not have made much of a difference. However, this short amount of extra time really soaked up a lot of the sauce. It was still a great meal but I would definitely recommend sticking with the 6-8 mins time frame.

Very good! I had about 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice in my fridge, so I decided to throw it in...it was amazing!

So easy, healthy, inexpensive, and very tasty! What else can you ask for? Great recipe....yummy and light. I used Hunt's petite diced tomatoes and added some minced garlic. Will make again...looking forward to the leftovers.
