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!

I agree with many reviewers about it needing something - I added more pesto and that helped (I make my own pesto with fresh basil and I think that has a stronger flavor so that might also have helped). I added pine nuts for a little crunch. I will make again as it was easy and pretty healthy.
