Really good - the feta cheese is the secret of this dish. I made exactly as is except I had my own homemade pesto. I also put freshly shredded parmesan cheese on the top before I served. I will absolutely make this again!

My fiancé said this dish is a much better pasta dish than you would find in a restaurant! It was so fast to make. I used veggie penne pasta and added a little chopped onion and yellow bell pepper while cooking the chicken pieces. I also added rehydrated sun dried tomatoes.

1 lb of pasta - I have always used penne or ziti. I am sure others would work as well. Enjoy!

I did it with beef cubes instead of chicken and I added diced tomatoes and mushrooms and it tasted terrific!

Simple and delicious! So easy to make I was worried that only using salt and pepper would leave it bland but it didn't ;)
