    It was easy. I used Chicken Sweet Italian Sausage with peppters. I used onions, broccoli and mixed with pasta seasoned with Kraft Light Italian dressing. My hubby enjoyed it. I will make again.

    This was fast and easy and good. I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper before cooking and used a Lite Caesar instead of Italian dressing (it's what I had on hand). I used dried parsley because I didn't have fresh. I didn't find it bland at all, I think becuse of the Caesar dressing which is a little more robust than Italian usually is when you cook with it. I'd make it again.
