Store green peppers in plastic bag in refrigerator for up to 1 week. Seeded, chopped peppers can be frozen for up to 6 months.

Don't Have Leftover Chicken?

Just look in the freezer, deli or luncheon meat sections of your supermarket for prepared cooked chicken. Use as much as you need and freeze the rest for another use.

Perfect Pasta

For perfect pasta that's cooked just right, test it often near the end of the cooking time suggested on the package. The perfect pasta is done when it's tender, but still slightly firm as you bite into it.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband and I loved it! My husband and I loved it! It taste even better the second day. I added garlic salt at the end to spice it up a little. I didn't have pre-cooked chicken, but I had marinated some earlier that day in Italian Salad dressing (4 hours) and just cooked it in non-stick spray. It adds another 30 minutes or so, but you can make enough to have for another recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my husband's favorite dish! This is my husband's favorite dish! However I do agree that it is not very kid friendly because it is pretty spicy. But before I put in the Rotel tomatoes & chiles, I spoon out a little and set aside for my daughter so she doesn't have to eat it spicy. I also add extra cheese. Very very good and easy to make.

I completely disagree that it's not a good one for kids, I have a 3yr old and 5yr old (and a younger one but he can't have cheese) but both of them loved it!! We used the mexican velveeta instead of the regular one and it wasn't at all spicy. Everyone loved it and I will def be making it again

I omitted the cheese and added sauteed carrots and celery along with the onions and green pepper, but not much green pepper. When the spaghetti started soaking up the juice I added a small can of V-8 juice. Was excellent.
