Has anyone tried substituting canned tomatoes for the fresh?

Yum! Shrimp are good in it too!

Very good. Added some chicken with it

Made this for dinner and even with winter tomatoes it was excellent! Served with shrimp oreganato another easy recipe from Taste of Home website. Perfect and ooh it's so good!!

Why couldn't one just add pre-cooked Rotisserie chicken or some other already cooked chicken when the chicken broth is added? That reads to me like an entire meal to me, one pot meal, no?

Is the chicken recipe referred to by Lollyanna (12/3/11) a Mr. Foods recipe? If so, I'd really like to have the sounds good and would be perfect with the Angelic Pasta recipe given here.

I believe what Lollyanna was referring to is the rotisserie chicken from the grocery store deli.

I love this pasta and I serve it with a chicken dish I know is Mr.Foods but can't find it on here. The chicken is baked in a foil bag...coat chicken in Italian Dry dressing add to bag then mix in bowl chopped zuchinni, yellow squash, and chopped white onions,coat in Bottled Italian dressing, then add a package of shredded Motz cheese..and dump in to the pocket and seal the bag and bake at 400...

I believe that chicken dish is called No Toil Chicken in Foil found on this website :)
