Turned out great! Used a different tomato sauce and doubled the batch for a week of lunches.
Simple weeknight recipe. my wife absolutely loved it but i felt the sauce could of used a little more flavor, will make it again though for sure
Was good and yummy I replaced the chicken with minced beef and the basil with italian seasoning

Was ok, but did some additions.. I added some grill onions and mushrooms and topped with crushed onion & garlic croutons on top.

I changed it up a bit. Doctored up the jarred sauce and added some spice. I also used a tad bit less cheese and pan seared the chicken breast in coconut oil but it turned out great!

My husband is gluten free so I had to make this with gluten free rigatoni. I expected the taste to change but it did not. This is a marvelous recipe. The balance of cheese to noodles to sauce is perfect!!!!
Was good. Added big bits of onions.

It was delicious! Probably one of the best meal recipes I’ve found on Yummly. Even my picky toddler ate it without complaint.

delicious!! my husband and I loved it and will have leftovers tomorrow.
It turned out very well. I cooked skinless breasts in a little olive oil after spicing them with mrs dash garlic blend and basil, then cut them up. I also put more basil and minced onions between the layers. I'd make it again.
amazing i would make this again
