My family loved this recipe. My son asked me when I was going to make it again. I thought it was very good too, but it was a little dry. I think next time I'll make it without the flour for thickening. I think the cream cheese will make the sauce thick enough.
This is a solid recipe. I have made it twice now, but I made changes the first time that I cooked it due to the produce I had on hand and it was so delicious that I don't think I can ever make it as written. And that is the reason for the 4 stars. The changes I made were that I omitted the mushrooms and zucchini and used 1 large tomato, that I diced and cooked, until reduced, with the garlic before adding in the flour, seasonings, and chicken broth. I also used half a box of frozen spinach that I thawed and squeezed dry, before adding it to the tomato/garlic mixture. I basically followed the recipe as written the rest of the way. And it's definitely something I will make again and again. We're having it with grilled pesto chicken tonight! Can't wait! :-)
Turned out incredibly tasteful. Love all the veggies that are included. Tastes very rich, but without the accompanying calories. Only change I made was to use low-fat cream cheese. No garlic in the house, so used a tad of garlic salt on the cream mixture. This is a definite keeper.
This was so good! I added a bit more garlic, used regular cream cheese and regular mozzarella without the touch of Philadelphia because that's what I had on hand. If it makes it to dinner tonight, I will add some leftover cooked chicken.
My whole family loves this recipe! The only thing I did differently was that I grated the zucchini. My kid wouldn't eat it when it was in slices. Grating it made it not noticable and they ate it and didn't even know :)
I followed what other reviewers said: I added chicken, more garlic, and yellow squash. I also used whole wheat pasta and added tomatoes. I thought it was great! I'm not a big fan of squash, but I thought it was really good (and it looked very close to the picture)! Will definitely make again.
AMAZING! This is my fiance's new favorite! :)
Delicious !! Will definitely make again….
Easy to put together. Turned out lovely. I used green zucchini and yellow squash. The sauce was perfect. Even better the next day warmed up for a quick lunch!
My whole family just loved this!! I did add grilled chicken,extra garlic and a little salt to the veggies and it made it quite good. The only change I would make is that I would probably add the spinach after I added the Neufchatel Cheese and then add it all to the pasta. I like the spinach to be a little more cooked and wilted. Other than that I will for sure make this again!!
