Reviews for Pasta Primavera with Chicken
"Quick & Easy! I used broccoli slaw (from the produce area), substituted milk for the water & added extra seasoning."
"Very good and easy. I Used the Tyson pretty cooked chicken cubs wich made it really easy. I'm disabled and never know when I might not feel like cooking from scratch. I can keep all these ingredients in the freezer or cupboard to make when I have a bad day. The only thing differentl I did was added Xtra seasoning. We like a lot of garlic and seasoning though. Thank you so much for quick and easy meal.oh ya serve with garlic bread.yum"
"Good even the kids enjoyed it."
"I made this for dinner last night and we loved it. It was flavorful, hearty and nuritious. I left out the lemon juice which would have brightened the flavor and stirred in the parmesan. I will definiely make this again."
"it wasnt bad but lacked some flavor. i tweaked it by cooking some onions and fresh garlic with the chicken breast and adding a few dashes of franks hot sauce into the sauce. flavor achieved! i cut and steamed fresh broccoli, carrots and cauliflower to use up some community co-op produce. also i changed the pasta to garden rigatoni and used coconut milk rather than water. i know, its like this is a whole new recipe, not much of a review, sorry."
