This reminded me alot of the ************** Steamer Chicken Marinara Pasta Bowl, which is one of my favorites. I cooked the chicken in a mixture of spices, which helped the overall flavor immensely. I omitted the dressing to cook the chicken when I did this. I also used an Italian blend of cheeses to put on top, instead of just mozzarella. It added a bit of a complex set of flavors, which we all enjoyed. My husband ate this up with just those few small changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I changed this recipe a little bit to make it easier. I changed this recipe a little bit to make it easier. I used 26oz cheese & garlic spaghetti sauce, 1/3 cup dessing and added 1 tsp dried basil. I defrosted homemade meatballs and added to sauce. I cooked steamed brocolli and boiled penne plus pasta separately for kids. I tossed it together at the end and added grated parmesan cheese on top. I didn't think it would taste good with italian dressing but it had a great flavor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great recipe - Easy! Great recipe - Easy!!! Instead of using broccoli, I used brussel sprouts cut in half, pot boiled for a few minutes and sauted with the chicken. It was excellent. I have passed the recipe on to several friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was so delicious! This was so delicious! I did use extra dressing (just because I like it so much) and I just used a traditional jarred spaghetti sauce since my daughter doesn't really like basil. We will be making this again!
