"I made this last weekend and its still sitting in the fridge. My husband didn't care for it at all. I didn't care for the combination of spaghetti sauce with chicken. I think I might try this with hamburger instead. Or maybe just make the gnocchi and chicken and use some of my homemade white sauce instead of the spaghetti sauce."

"rather simple to make. im just a house husband and put this together in less than an hour to serve. i added xtra mushrooms, 3/4 orange bell pepper. basil, oregano, garlic salt, onion salt, and a 25oz jar of simply nature organic tomato basil sauce. experiment a lot with cooking so adding or subtracting to ones tastes to me is the art of cooking, otherwise the recipe will do fine. bon appetite italiana."

"Just tried this and even though I only had half of the gnocchi called for, it was still delicious. The brand of spaghetti sauce will make a big difference in flavor, so use a favorite. I also added 4oz of fresh mushrooms for a little extra flavor. There is not much "kick" to this dish, so if you like spice, season to taste. This is a keeper."

"I added zucchini and 1/2 tsp each of dried basil and parsley. It was good and will make it again when it's cold out."
