Really good and easy. Didn't have shells one time so I used whatever pasta I had and it was very good.

I'm not a broccoli person so I used spinach. So easy and tasty. I saw the idea of peas, I'll have to try that next time. It's a keeper

YUM! I also make these with peas instead of broccoli and add ham and mushrooms with the chicken. Both ways are delicious!!!!

My teenage daughter loves these! To her, it's a hand-held meal, and she calls them pasta tacos. I use light Alfredo sauce to lighten them up a bit, and add some diced onion and mushrooms sauteed in garlic to boost the flavor. Definitely a keeper.

I have made this several times. Everyone loves it. Even the kids. Made it for a friend, the day they moved into new home. And her picky son loved it. Next time I would like to try it by mixing it with a small pasta and mixing it all up like "menicki" did. I always use a rotisserie chicken.

this is easy and tastes good, I have also made it using cooked noodles or cooked macaroni, and just mix them all together, then bake, either way it is good

SO GOOD! Made this for a Packer game and ended up in a cheese coma. The only thing I will say is to either thaw the broccoli or use fresh and cut it into smaller pieces. Also I would a bow tie pasta or something similar but still delicious.
