I am a chronic "recipe changer"(?)!!! I added basil and peas to the cheese sauce when I was bringing it to a boil and my kids ATE IT UP! (4.5 3.5 and almost 2 years old...) Husband isn't home yet but I'm sure he'll enjoy it too!! Yummy!! Thanks! Read More

My husband really liked this. I thought it was okay but the sherry was a little overpowering for my taste. The sauce also wasn't as creamy as I would have liked. I imagined this would be quick to throw together. Though it wasn't difficult this is a "one dish meal" that dirties two pans a skillet a baking dish a strainer and numerous utensils. If I make this again it will probably be with leftover chicken and pasta from other meals. Read More

I made this recipe last night exactly as written except that I used klusky noodles instead of egg noodles. It turned out just perfect--great consistency great flavor. I will definitely make this again and have given this recipe to my mom and other friends. Read More
