Changes I made: After adding the vegetables I cooked them well. I cooked the pasta. I tossed the pasta with the chicken mixture and then packaged in freezer bags. I tossed in a pinch of grated Parmesan, sealed the bags and put them in the freezer.

This one was a toss-up. I absolutely loved it, in fact I think it is my favourite of the 5 recipes I made this evening. Hal did not like it.

Le dîner est servi . . .
