We felt there was too much sauce for the amount of pasta. We'll make this again using 2 - 8 ounce cans with a 3rd can ready if needed. We liked the combination of chicken and roasted vegetables.

I love the idea of this recipe, but the sauce was too thick and lacking in flavor. The sauce needed a little sugar to balance all the acidity from the tomato sauce. A little bit of red pepper flakes would be nice too. The chicken was perfect.
