Reviews for Garlic Chicken Spaghetti
"I really resent getting recipes like this in the "healthy" recipe section. What drugs were the editors on when they decided to call this healthy?"
"Made this tonight for the first time. I used a fresh tomato from my garden (seeded it, too) instead of sun dried. It was GREAT! Will make this one again for sure!Jan"
"Very,very good but a little dry so I added the whole can of chicken broth and it was wonderful. Judy"
