"So I have had this on my list of dinners to try for a while, but I STILL didn't have all the right ingredients. So I gave up and made it anyway - my way. I used kielbasa for chicken, added half an onion while browning that, and put in various dried herbs (Italian seasonings, sage, oregano), kosher salt/fresh black pepper, and crushed garlic from a jar. I used 1 cup of milk, two cans of tomatoes, and some cornstarch to thicken it. I left out the cayenne since I don't think such a small amount would have done much with the overpowering flavors of the tomatoes anyway. I only had stir fry veggies, but they worked for me. I put them in a strainer in the sink while my pasta boiled - I used piccolini (mini bow tie) - and then strained the pasta onto the veggies to thaw and drain. I added the pasta and veggies I decided I needed more sauce, so I added some leftover pizza sauce. You can easily use tomato sauce/paste, ect - I just used what I had. I forgot to top with Parmesan, but it was still fantastic. Sometimes you just have to tweak the recipes, and don't forget to taste it while cooking!"

"Pretty good recipe. I liked that it was fairly easy to prepare (you can get away with not measuring) since I forgot I planned to make this until right when I was hungry. Here are a few things I did differently: I didn't bother pounding the chicken first, so I just cooked longer, checking the internal temp every few minutes. I used regular breadcrumbs, which don't coat as well as Panko, but are still good for the recipe. I threw in several more seasonings to the breadcrumb mixture such as dried sage, oregano, Italian seasonings, kosher salt, and garlic powder. I only had about a cup of grape tomatoes in my freezer, so I added half a can of tomato sauce to make more of the topping. I didn't have any green onion, or regular onion, but I would like to try this recipe with regular. Overall, it's a fast recipe, good taste, and rather easy to change up without a lot of thought required."
