"While this recipe was okay, there are so many other recipes to make that are far better. I didn't dislike it, but it just lacked something to make it a meal I'd make again."

"This is one of my all-time favorite dishes. A nice twist on a classic spaghetti sauce with chicken and veg. I usually up the garlic and amount of veg for us, as that's our taste. It's excellent as is tho too!"
