Reviews for Creamy Italian Pasta with Chicken
"Recipe was easy to make but we didn't really like the combination of flavors. I used thawed frozen spinach so maybe that was part of the problem. I added some garlic as one of the reviewers suggested. Would not make the recipe again."
"Easy to throw together, and good. My whole family likes it!"
"This was a quick and edible meal to make. I added garlic to it but everyone still found it lacked a little something. Everyone agreed it needed some more spice. I added a touch of cayenne to the leftovers and that was better. Would also be good with some spicy sausage added to it. Even being a touch bland everyone still ate it so it will be made again with a few tweaks since it is a quick easy weeknight meal."
"Delicious! My whole family loved it! (3 young children) I used broccoli instead of spinach, rotini pasta, and a 3 cheese alfredo sauce. It was very flavorful, and so easy! Will definitely add it to my binder of recipes to make again."
"My kids are pretty picky and they all cleared their plates! It has a great flavor, but mild enough that the kids don't notice the veggies. And I appreciated how quick & easy it was to make. Loved it!"
"Yum! The only change was to grill my own chicken...family loved it!"
"This was really good. My family loved it. I use lite alfredo and added a liitle extra garlic. Would make again."
"I made this for a coffee/get together and there was nothing left. and the recipe was asked for time and again. I will for sure be making this again. It was a simple and flavorful meal that came together in no time at all."
"My family seemed to enjoy this dish last night. I added a couple cloves of fresh garlic and a small can of sliced black olives, and used frozen chopped spinach (thawed). Be sure to use a good quality Alfredo Sauce for best results."
"Although this was easy to make, the taste was really nothing special."
"We loved it! Even our son was ok with the spinach!"
