Delicious! I used leftover chicken, doctored up a jar of alfredo sauce, and added a handful of frozen spinach. The entire family LOVED it. Rich, decadent, and oh so yummy! Great recipe!!!

Excellent dish. The only change I made was to add mushrooms to the sauce. I will make this again.

This was a great dish and fairly easy to make! My family really enjoyed! I did not double the Sauce of the recipe but I did add a little more mozzarella cheese when I put the dish together and 2 more cloves of garlic when making the sauce. I added a sprinkle of the parmesan over the top when it was finished cooking. I cooked my chicken breasts in the skillet and lightly seasoned with salt and pepper till browned. I also used a smaller baking dish, an 8x11 and it worked perfectly! The 9x13 seemed too big for the amount of pasta going in. We loved it and I will definitely be making this again real soon!! It is now one of our favorite pasta bakes!!

Really easy to make- I made the Alfredo sauce instead of using store bought. It came together quickly and easily. Definitely recommend doubling the sauce recipe.

Great!! I just add asparagus and it’s delicious.

I made this tonight and my 11 year old immediately asked me "Can we have this again?" It was pretty heavy, and not at all as healthy as I would like, but delicious!

This was absolutely delicious, i enjoyed every bite. My only notes for future self is just based off of personal preference; 3 1/2 cloves minced garlic, but should honestly try garlic piwder instead. the minced garlic added a weird texture to the sauce in my opinion. I seasoned my chicken in a bag full of olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Then I made the sauce after adding a bit more oil to the pan from cooking the chicken before to add the carmalized bitd into the sauce. after the sauce was finished, I put the chicken back in my skillet and added the pasta and parmesan, mixed it together, put more parmesan on top and threw the whole thing into the oven.

It was delicious! I loved it (pasta girl) though I’d say my Dad enjoyed the chicken the most

Delicious made just as written.
Jess Horan 26 Jun 2017
So delicious!! Very easy to make and i saved some time by buying alfredo sauce instead of making it. I put a lot more cheeze in it than what the recipe called for but I like a lot of chese in my ziti.

A new family favorite! I added a little more shredded chicken and doubled the Alfredo recipe; everyone loved it!
what a great casserole to make for a crowd! It was very cheesy but not super rich like other Alfredo's can be. It is definitely a keeper!
kendrasalefski 15 Mar 2017
amaaaaazing will definetly make again I added italian seasoning on the chicken just for a little more zest and it turned out perfect
It was excellent & easy! I substituted the batch of alfredo Buitoni's premade alfredo & it was perfectly delicious! No to mention the direction where so easy to follow!
Alyssa S. 25 Feb 2017
Made it for some family and they instantly wanted the recipe, definitely a kid favorite as well, their kids tore it up! However, i used my own alfredo recipe, but still an easy, yummy dish if you want to feed more than 4 people, loved it!
Lucy Chen 22 Feb 2017
Wow! This is awsome I love it! This is so delicious it is mind blowing thank you for the recipe because now i am going to make another batch with my sister
Maddie Pope 20 Feb 2017

Michelle C. 3 Feb 2017
Loved it! I used bow tie spinach pasta and all I had was whole milk. It turned out great. It is also a quick meal when you are short on time!
Soon-Mi S. 30 Jan 2017
Followed it exactly and it tasted amazing! I used rotisserie chicken. A little more cheese cant hurt
Kimberlee H. 15 Jan 2017
I love making this sauce for my family. I season with onion powder in addition to the salt/pepper but the best part is my 2 year old picky eater loves it.
Kennedy G. 2 Jan 2017
Super easy and delicious! Definitley double the Alfredo sauce. Was also good with a bit of shredded sharp cheddar on top.
Hannah J. 10 Nov 2016
This recipe is fantastic and easy! I doubled the alfredo recipe as others suggested and I'm happy I did! It doesn't make great leftovers, but after it initially comes out of the oven it is great. If you want to save it as leftovers I would suggest not baking half of the pasta. It also taste delicious even if you don't bake it.
