I always have Barilla Whole Grain Spaghetti on hand and thought I would give this a try. The grilled chicken was perfect but the rest of the meal was just OK. Not sure I will try to make this again with tweaks.

While I really believe Barillo pastas are some of the best, I've been less than enthused with their recipes. I used 8 ounces of pasta and that was too much in proportion to the other ingredients. The chicken, broccoli and cherry tomatoes were lost in the pasta. The flavors where trying hard to "come through", inspite of the 6 cloves of garlic and triple thyme I used. Salt and pepper were sorely needed, which I did add. We have been eating whole grain pasta since it was introduced and loving it. We appreciate the extra fiber and protein it offers. Thank you, Barillo, for your fine productsa!

This was just okay. As is, I felt like it was missing something. Added more salt and extra pesto sauce to the dish and shredded parmesan cheese helped, but still rather disappointed. Love Barilla pasta, but this recipe needs a little work.
