    Good healthy summer recipe. I added some crushed red pepper with the lemon zest, and saved some of the pasta water for the sauce at the end.

    My boyfriend absolutely loved this pasta. I added some mozzarella because it’s my favourite cheese.

    This was the first recipe using this App and i think it came out great. It’s a light dish but very flavorful. I made a few additions... I used some pre-boiled chicken breasts (that’s all I had on hand) that I shredded and cooked with some garlic salt, garlic powder and some lemon pepper. I also added some marinated artichokes (I thought it would compliment the lemon/garlic Flavors). Instead of using penne I used farfalle and it was delicious! Definitely adding this to my rotation!!!

    The dish has potential. Following the recipe as it is now, the dish is a little dry. But the next time I make it, I'll use less pasta and a little more wine and lemon...maybe add some red pepper flakes too.

    It was quick and easy to make. had a very good taste, but needed to have a little sauce. I suppose you could make an Alfredo sauce for it...Overall for this house hold and non cook, suit the budget, taste buds and time constraint.

    Hello all, First of all this dish recieved 5 stars because anything I make turns out delicious. While cooking this dish the light aroma of parmesan crusted lemon filled my kitchen (mmmm so sweet and suttle). The chicken so moist it melts in your mouth after coming fresh off a skillet. When mixing it all together.. BAM it hits your nassel passages and explodes your brain with creamy melted parm and leafy spinach providing you with all your needed food groups for the day. - Chef Emerson

    Even my sort of picky 9 and 8 year olds ate this, and it was their first ever consumption of Spinach. I will definitely make this again.
    I made a sauce for it with light cream and a cup of freshly grated parmesan. You always need a sauce with pasta.

    Would make again with extra chicken and 3/4 of the noodles.

    My daughter likes it. I added heavy cream to provide more sauce.
    I thought it was great, but I did add heavy cream and the Parmesan when mixing all together to make a Mac and cheese consistency. I also added paparika and with these additions it tasted SO GOOD!! 😁😁 I loved it
