    Taste

    I think if i was to make this again i would add some roasted chicken and green and red pepper and moe cheese. Then put some fresh grounded pepper on it. For aome thing more creamy add a little cream or 1/2 and 1/2..

    I was skeptical after reading the reviews but it's wonderful. I added a pinch of salt and pepper to taste and some butter when cooking the veggies. To the finished dish I added feta cheese and parmesan cheese. I'm gonna add real bacon bits next time.

    This is my favorite. I grilled the chicken with herb chicken fajita seasoning in the skillet. I added the seasoning at the end when it's tossed with the liquid from the chicken. I added Italian seasoning to the other seasonings. Then I added butter and grated Parmesan cheese to the noodles. Be sure not to use reduced sodium broth. This gets so many raves and requests, you are welcome to use my secret recipe.
