I added a Tablespoon of Herbs De Provence to the sauce for more flavor, and used the fresh asparagus I had available instead of squash. I'll definitely make this again.

Very tasty and family loved it. I was looking for a recipe that used a bunch of veggies because we had on hand that needed to eaten. So I used mushrooms, cauliflower, carrots (julienned), onion, and squash and it turned out great. I also used linguini and added some oregano and basil.

Excellent recipe! Very easy! I made it exactly as written; will definitely add mushrooms, basil and oregano next time and I’ll use thin spaghetti or linguine instead of the angel hair pasta. My pasta was sticky and clumpy underneath the chicken/veggie mixture; maybe mixing it all together before baking would’ve helped. Can’t wait to try it again!

A family favorite plus a great way to get in veggies! This made it into the recipe book.

Absolutely loved this recipe! I've made it as directed with pasta and also have subbed cauliflower rice for the pasta. It was just as good!

This is delicious. It was easy to make and just the right balance of pasta, veggies, and chicken.

Loved this! Made as written but could easily use many other variations of veggies, herbs and spices. Thanks for sharing the recipe! It's great!

Great family food. My youngest son especially liked it very much, saying: "This is the kind of simple food I want!" I didn't saute the veggies, however, but just added them with the sauce, since peppers and squash get soggy very easily, and I didn't use angel hair as it clumps a lot and I find it hard to work with. Will definitely be making this again.
