I've made this several times and it has turned out fantastic each time. The flavors are bold and complimentary. Great meal to serve to family and guests.

I'm NOT the kind of person to waste food, especially certain ingredients. If I were to make this recipe, I'd cook the pasta in the chicken broth. Best of all, there's tons of flavor!!! :-)

This is so good, but I added Greek olives and mushrooms, then tossed with feta. Also used less stock and reduced it so added flavor.

I can't believe you would discard this flavorful chicken broth after cooking. I would thicken it up with flour or cornstarch and then serve over the pasta and chicken. Or save the broth for another day to cook with rice.
