Utterly forgettable. The description made it sound really tasty the reality was dry pasta without enough anything all tossed together. I don't think this is worth trying to tweak. Read More

I thought that this recipe was way too greasy and did not have enough flavor. Would not make it again. Read More

Quick dish and a great way to enjoy chicken and pasta together esp. if you have an abundance of sage in your garden. Adding bread crumbs was a neat touch. With a little personalization this could be a signature dish for anyone whose creative in the kitchen. Read More

next time I will add a lot more sage and a bit more olive oil it wasn't as flavorful as I expected. Read More

It was quite bland and disapointing although it was a decent basic recipe. Read More

I really liked this recipe. It tasted exactly as I expected it to--light and subtle--which admittedly is a different style than most American pastas. I didn't think it was bland at all but the garlic cloves I used happened to be giant so perhaps I used more garlic than the recipe calls for. Also I used dried thin spaghetti rather than fresh linguine so that may have affected the texture. Regardless my whole family liked this one. We'll have it again! Read More

Why this recipe does not include salt and pepper I will never know. I went a step further. After preparing the garlic/crumb mixture I sauted the chicken in the same pan. I added salt and pepper and the some Worcestershire sauce (about a tablespoon) and some chicken broth. Cooked the chicken until it was done and decided it needed a little kick. Siracha sauce is the old standby so I squirted some of that in. More cooking tasted and it was great. I then added the egg noodles (what I had) and the crumb mixture. It soaked up all of the juice. The dish was great but I would make with thighs next time. I doubled the chicken without doubling the crumb mixture since I had two breasts in the package. It worked fine just more chicken. Read More

Rating a 4 instead of a 5 because it needs modifications. With the mods this is a 5. Per other reviewers I spruced this up by adding salt and pepper chopping the garlic and sautéing the chicken in a decent amount of butter (to add more to the sauce). It was really good and light! Read More
