Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The recipe was easy ro prepare and turned out perfectly. it reminded me of chicken por pie without the crust. I did not understand what is meant by a pound of pasta but I ended up using 5-6 cups of dry pasta and it turned out well. one family member suggested making the recipe with penne noodles which would make the dish a bit lighter. The other family thoughr it would be bettwr as a side dish. i also did not sprinkle the parmesan on top, but set the container on the dinner table. I would like to make thisnagain without using basil . If you are a lover of chicken pot pie, I would suggest keeping the basil. Since there are no reviews for this recipe, I would really love to hear what others think of it.

Usually you buy pasta in a package that is one pound, and that is what they meant in the recipe. Some packages are only 12 ounces though so read the label. I do not care for basil that much, so I left it out of mine too, and it tasted much better. I used a pinch of marjoram in place of the basil, which enhances the flavor of the poultry.
