Healthy, tasty, and very easy to make. Use your favorite fresh or frozen vegetables. Pepper flavored olive oil works well, too.

I liked this recipe because it was so simple but did add a few things to give it a bit of extra flavor. I made it as a side dish so left out the chicken. I added fresh basil and green onions then sprinkled parmesan cheese on top. We all enjoyed it and I'm sure I'll make it again. Nice on a hot day and the leftovers make an easy lunch! Read More

A little bland. 1 halved the recipe for my family of four (two younger kids) with plenty left over though I probably didn't need to halve the vegetables. I'd adjust the portions and add some more seasoning if I make it again. Read More

My family loved this meal. I had to make a 2nd batch since the first one disappeared right away. I doubled the amount of vegetables and added 1 package of onion soup mix powder. Read More

Loved using frozen veggies--so easy. Needs a lot of spices like seasoning salt. Best if it sits and marinates for awhile. Read More

I've made this several times and its a great treat to take for lunch. Using "fiesta style" frozen vegatables makes it even better! Read More

I seasoned the meat with several random spices before cooking which helped tremendously. I put in 12 oz of mixed veggies but I'd definitely add more next time. I am hoping the flavors will meld together overnight and make some delicious left-overs. The pasta still needed some flavor! Read More

This pasta salad is very tasty and very easy to make. I took a shortcut by cooking the chicken in the microwave. Read More

Now this is my kind of pasta salad- simple and delicate but filling. The nice thing is it isn t overly seasoned so it tastes like the fresh ingredients it contains. I added more veggies than the amount written. I roasted some baby zucchini with the chicken. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
