    This recipe was wonderful! A definite winner! I did make changes to it, though. I soaked the sun dried tomatoes in the olive oil along with 2 cloves of minced garlic and two pinches of rosemary. I chunked the chicken before cooking and added extra olive oil to saute it. After sauteing the chicken I added the tomatoes with oil, garlic, and rosemary, the zucchini and yellow squash, and a chunked red pepper. When I added the pasta to the pan I also added enough chicken consomme to coat the entire dish, heated it through, and then added grated Locatelli cheese to the top.  -  03 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was delicious! The only issue was the recipe didn't specify the cheese! I used 1/4 cup grated parmesean and about 1 cup of mozzarella. I also used wagon wheel pasta (I didn't have any bow-tie) and the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes vs. olive oil). I added about 1/4 cup more sun-dried tomatoes since we love them. It was a wonderful, light tasting recipe. My husband loved it, leftovers were just as good as the first day, and we I will make again and again!  -  09 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is the start of a great recipe. I would have given it a five, but I made a lot of changes. I microwaved zucchini slices, carrot slices and some fresh brocoli florets until crisp tender. I then sauted them in EVOO with 1/2 of a sweet onion cut in 2 inch slices, a red pepper in 2 inch pieces, and a few baby bella mushrooms, sliced. I added 2 minced cloves of garlic, chicken chunks that I had left over from a rotissarie chicken. I added sliced sun-dried tomatoes with a little bit of the oil they were packed in. Finally I added a couple of tablespoons of evoo to the pasta, mixed it all together and added some grated parmesan and sprinkled a small handfull of shredded mozerella. It was fabulous, restaurant quality. My family loved it. We will definitely have this again.  -  25 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
