Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made one substitution in this recipe and used ranch dressing instead of Italian. I made one substitution in this recipe and used ranch dressing instead of Italian. It was so great - we've had it twice in 2 weeks! With chicken it is a delicious meal. Without the chicken, it is a great side dish! Either way, it is best when made ahead of time so it's perfect for a busy weeknight or weekend cookout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was very good. It was very good. I had some frozen red bell peppers and some frozen peas, I put them in with the pasta as it was cooking. I also put the chopped onions in too. It was yummy. My 2yr old, 5yr old and husband loved it. I also fixed it the night before I needed it. Way to go Kraft. One of my favorites! :o)
