    Nice easy meal, family enjoyed the change of pasta/chicken.  -  12 May 2010


    Had this for dinner tonight. Was nice but needed just a bit more flavour. I added a spoon of sour cream to mine and the boys added more Parmesan cheese. Will be doing it again.  -  30 Jun 2016


    I agree that this recipe needed something. I prepared it by browning the chicken, then added the onions and lots of garlic, cooked it until the onions were soft, then added the brocolli and 1/2 cup of chicken broth. (The chicken broth helps take away the natural bitterness of the brocolli). I then added a 24 oz. can of crushed tomatoes, basil, oregano, parmesan cheese, and a cup of dry red wine. I then let it simmer for 30 minutes and tossed with rigatoni. Turned out very well and I would definitely make it again!  -  01 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
