This was good, but my family prefers the version I've been making for years.

Loved the chicken seasoning. Really added to the taste.

Very easy to make with great results - I have made this one many times and it pleases even picky eaters.  I should add that I usually add extra spaghetti sauce to fully coat all of the pasta.

Very tastey!! I baked mine covered at 350 for about 25 min, instead of cooking in skillet; then spooned sauce on top, plus cheese and baked uncovered till cheese melted.
