    This is the first recipe I've tried that hadn't yet been reviewed, but I was intrigued. This is delicious! The only thing I changed was to use penne instead of lasagna noodles (personal preference). This makes a lot, so plan on feeding a crowd or having a lot of leftovers. I don't mind, though, it's even better the next day! Thanks.  -  03 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love lasagna so it's no surprise that I love this recipe. the sauce is wonderful! I had to modify it for my childrens preferences (no mushrooms, mozzeralla cheese instead of swiss) but I think it would have been great as written. I used broccoli and spinach. I made one pan for dinner and one for the freezer. definately a repeater!  -  08 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Me personally, found this a bit lacking in the "saucy" department. I should've doubled the sauce. Plus, I thought it was too hammy. (Even upped the chicken to five shredded breasts) Nixed the 'shrooms. Added in White wine, Penzey's Pasta Sprinkle, gobs of garlic, oodles more Parmesan and some parsley. The crew (After a few him's and haw's about the broccoli), however, thought it was pretty darn tasty, and the entire pan was cleaned out.  -  28 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
