This was easy, different, and really tasty. I live in Italy and so it is difficult to come across a new pasta dish that we haven't already tried. I think I will try this one out on some Italians just to see what they say.

This was quick, easy, and tasty. You can't go wrong with the simplicity of this recipe. We are very busy with the kids' activities so I am always looking for something to "whip up".

Certainly easy and edible, but not much flavor. I was disappointed in the lack of spice in the sauce (used Classico's brand) and should have added some crushed red pepper as it simmered. Could also have benefitted from some Italian seasonings with the browning chicken. Without the fresh basil it would have been a dud for me, but it was definitely a well-balanced, easy and inexpensive dinner.
