Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband had decided that this is his new favorite. My husband had decided that this is his new favorite. He was so excited that there was something left over for lunch the next day, even though he ate himself almost sick the night before with this dish. I think it reminds him of a dish his grandma used to make, which he calls "macaraoni." It's similar but has ground beef instead of chicken, no cheese, and a can of crushed tomatoes with the bell pepper and onion. His gram also seasons her sauce with garlic powder, basil, oregano, and parsley. For those of you who think the sauce is a bit bland and end up bying a seasoned sauce, it may help just to add some spices or Italian seasoning to your sauce.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great recipe - specially love the fact you do not need to precook the pasta. Great recipe - specially love the fact you do not need to precook the pasta. I did vary it some. As someone else suggested I seasoned the chicken pieces before browning, and instead of the pepper and onion used half of a 14 oz bag of frozen pepper stir fry combination. I also used Vodka Sauce instead of just regular spaghetti sauce. Nice!!!! Definitely will keep this recipe!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a great dish. This was a great dish. I made it today, and I made a few changes to the recipe. Instead of using a whole green pepper, I used half of a red pepper. I used half of an onion, I added some extra flavor to the sauce by putting in about a tablespoon of crushed oregano and two small laurel leaves. I added salt to the chicken, to flavor it. With the hot pepper flakes, it adds a nice touch. It's a great recipe, and I am looking forward to making it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really liked this dish. I really liked this dish. However, the small amount of ingredients tended to create a bland mix, so I only added 1/2 green pepper, 1/2 onion, some chopped garlic, and two stalks of chopped green onions. I also salted the dish to taste as it cooked in the skillet. Or I would suggest using a spaghetti sauce that is flavored, like roated garlic or herbed sauce. Otherwise, a superb dish!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time it was definitely delish- we made it without the pepper. First time it was definitely delish- we made it without the pepper. Mom and I thought it might need something to add flavor- garlic maybe? Also, we placed the mixed ingredients, minus the cheese, into a casserole dish, sprinkled cheese on top. Baked in the oven for about 5 minutes along with warming some garlic bread. Overall, an exciting addition to our healthy menu!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My very picky family loved this! My very picky family loved this! I left out the green pepper, added zucchini & frozen white corn & wow! I tried it with chicken breast the first time, the next time I make it, I'm going to try ground turkey meat crumbled, so the family thinks it's hamburger meat! But everyone really liked this and it is sooooo simple! What a great taste!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple yet savory! Simple yet savory! Very well rounded taste, it had a little of everything. I used a yellow bell pepper (about 3/4) and just half an onion. For sauce I used Prego Garlic & Parmesean which kicked up the flavor a bit. Breadsticks are a great side addition. Upon lifting the cover of skillet to serve, my husband let out an "Wow! Mmm..."

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I would make this again, but I think I would add more veggies to "bulk" it up. I would make this again, but I think I would add more veggies to "bulk" it up. I don't know if was the sauce I used but it seemed a little wet. I would like it to be thicker. Maybe next time I'll bake it. Other wise it's good, quick and easy. I added some garlic and italian seasoning. Would be good with ground beef or turkey also.
