This recipe was fantastic! I added the cooked chicken to the pasta and sauce to mix it altogether just before serving. Don't skip on the basil it adds amazing fresh flavor. Next time I may add capers or artichokes! Read More

very good! I used a KRAFT red pepper vinaigrette because i couldn't find the sun-dried tomato kind. I added extra veggies (red pepper zucchini) and cooked them in the dressing for a while to marinate them a bit. I also marinated the chicken in the dressing for a while too. Very good! will for sure save this recipe and make it again! Read More

I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! I'll be making this again but next time I may cut down on the amount of pasta. I like my pasta with a little bit more sauce but that's a personal preference. This one is definitely a keeper! Read More

This was a great early spring way to enjoy tomato and basil pasta one of our summer favorites. Next time I'll add some garlic. I squeezed a bit of lemon juice on after my first bit for some extra tang. I recommend that. Read More

This recipe is very tasty. I was surprised by how much flavor the chicken had. It was very moist also. (Be sure to let it rest before slicing.) I sliced the chicken very thinly and we had leftovers for chicken salad the next day. The sauce is very rich and flavorful. The only downside is that my tomatoes were too tart. Next time I'll use halved cherry tomatoes on the vine. They are sweeter and have a better texture when cooked. Read More

This is amazing this was the first meal my boyfriend made me and it was sooo good. Although we used regular cream cheese in place of the neufchatel cause we didnt know what that was and we used cherry tomatoes instead of grape and it was so much better. I really recommend trying it out!!! Read More

This was so good! I added some sauteed mushrooms a dash of red pepper flakes and crushed bacon to it. You'll probably want to double the amount of sauce. The sauce was a little thin but let it sit for 5 minutes and it will thicken perfectly. A!! Read More

We just made this recipe tonight and it was delicious! We did not have grape or cherry tomatoes but diced up a few Roma tomatoes. We also cut up zucchini and yellow squash to give it some extra color and sneak in veggies for our daughter. It was perfect and we look forward to making this again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
