I was on the fence about this one before cooking it, but wow, the whole family loved it. I followed the recipe exactly and it came together super fast (I had precut the chicken the night before so this saved alot of time). In the time it took to boil water and cook the pasta, I had the pesto made and chicken cooked. I agree with the previous reviewer that next time toasted pine nuts would be an awesome addition. Yummy weeknight meal!

This dish turned out great. I used spaghetti noodles because I couldn't find the other stuff. I do agree with another reviewer that the dish is missing just a little something. I might try adding toasted walnuts next time to round out the flavors. The sauce was very creamy and tasted like it would be much more fattening than it is. I also think the flavors are good enough to go meatless. I'll definitely make this again. I recommend serving the dish with a green salad tossed with any leftover goat cheese, red onions, evoo and balsamic vinegar. Very tasty!

This was really quite good. I added sauteed portabello mushrooms and put it over wheat penne and it was delicious. Next time I will add toasted pine nuts. I will definately make this again.

Very good recipe! Came together quickly considering all of the prep work. Only changes were a little more garlic and I used regular evaporated milk as that is what I found at the store. It is a very filling meal. A lot of times my husband and I find ourselves wanting a little more that what the recommended serving is but this was perfect. Will certainly make again!

My fiance and I LOVED this. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used a 13.5 oz box of whole wheat spaghetti for the pasta, and I added an extra 1/2 Tbsp of balsamic vinegar. We almost added pinenuts after reading the reviews, but we forgot to pick them up at the store- and we felt the dish really didnt need them. It wasn't missing anything- it was perfect!

We just finished dinner. This dish was terrific. Made as written but used rotisserie chicken and a jar of sun dried tomato pesto. Added a handful of chopped fresh parsley at the end. We say YUM!
