"This wasn't too bad. I liked how quick it was to make. The only change I made was using all broccoli since I don't care for cauliflower. I like the recipe for "quick chicken Fettuccine" much better, which is very similar to this recipe."

"This recipe was delicious! Like someone else mentioned, my husband is not that crazy about pasta either. So I substituted tiny red and yellow potatoes and left everything else the same. Cook the potatoes about 15 minutes before adding the veggies. It was fabulous."

"I don't know why I didn't find this recipe sooner! Absolutely delicious. As other reviewers have commented, I did not find the Lipton soup, but used the Good Seasons Garlic and Herb dressing mix instead. I also used and entire box (16 oz) of rotini. Just the right amount of sauce for the pasta, well seasoned, delish!"

"Extremely tasty and filling as well as easy to make. I couldn't find the soup mix in the store so I used a garlic and herb salad dressing mix instead and it was good."

"Absolutely delicious and easy! I've made it twice already and received rave reviews both times. I used only broccoli florets instead of the broccoli/cauliflower combo & it was great."

"I was out of cheddar cheese so substituted mozzarella. This was surprisingly good !! I too had trouble finding the soup mix at my normal store, but found it at the Walmart. I will definitely be making this again."

"I had to make a few changes: used 2 cans of chicken and couldn't find the Lipton soup mix so just used about a tsp. of a dry garlic & herb marinade and it turned out excellent. My husband and 3 year old loved it too. I loved the flavor the marinade added but next time will probably do more veggies."

"Very easy and tasty. The garlic and herb mix gives it a good zingy flavor. It could use a little less cheese."

"Very good. Kids ate it and husband had two helpings. Would definitely make this again, and next time maybe omit the chicken and just bump up the veggies."
