This was just okay. The color of the sauce turned out to be dark orange and it was not appetizing looking and it wasn't the greatest tasting. If I was to make again and not sure that I would I would go very light with the pasta sauce so as to try to keep a lighter color. Read More

Simple recipe that goes a long way. I forget to get the pasta sauce that the recipe calls for so I made a few changes. I kept the pasta and chicken seperate. And I added a handful of shredded cheddar cheese to the pasta/broccoli mixture as well as the cream cheese. Pretty Darn Tasty! Read More

I used Caesar dressing instead of the roasted red pepper and Parmesan (it's what I had on hand). I also didn't have any pasta sauce so I used a can of tomato sauce and a can of Italian style diced tomatoes. It was tasty! My family devoured it! Will definitely make again. Read More

So delicious! After I made the sauce I loved it so much that I added extra cream cheese... the sauce ended up looking almost like a vodka sauce just perfect! Read More

This was so quick and delicious. I was doubtful about the broccoli but the end product is so tasty. I recommend it for any busy cook. I did use regular cream cheese that I had left over from the holidays but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Read More
