Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thanks Kraft for this quick, easy, and delicious recipe. Thanks Kraft for this quick, easy, and delicious recipe. I work 12-hour shifts, and this will be a great addition to the meals that I prepare and take to work with me, or for those times I don't want to spend much time in the kitchen. I didn't have penne pasta on hand, so I used spiral-colored pasta instead. This dish presents beautifully, and with only one pot to wash, I really hit the jackpot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of people said that it was bland. A lot of people said that it was bland. I am going to use salsa instead of canned tomatoes, and I am going to add black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. I may even use some ground turkey sausage. This should give it more flavor, and I will add more water. What do you guys think?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dish is seriously wonderful! This dish is seriously wonderful! It has sooo much flavor, and one wouldn't think so from looking at the ingredient list. It is perfect as is, but sometimes I add italian sausage for an extra protein boost.
