Chicken Chili Fettuccine

This pasta dish features ingredients mild enough for kids, but tasty enough for grown-ups. The dish also works well for company. Cindy Cohen of Alta Loma, California writes, “Not only is it tasty, it has nice and colorful presentation.”

    This was very good and I made it exactly like the recipe says with the exception of mushrooms . . . didn't have any. I also made only half and it worked out perfect for the 2 of us. Next time I might add some Italian seasoning. It's a keeper!

    My family really liked this recipe. I did not have any fettuccine so I used linguine which worked perfectly. It was very quick to prepare which I really need on a weekday ;-)

    This could be a 4 star recipe if you used fresh mushrooms and maybe add some more seasoning. I might also try adding a jar of salsa instead of one of the cans of tomatoes. I would also half this recipe as I got about 10-12 servings instead of 5.
