  1. 4 stars
    Flavor was good but only used 8 oz of pasta + it made a large amount. Also think it would be better to quick release when done bc pasta was mushy.

    1. I’m sorry I haven’t tested this out yet. You could substitute ground chicken but using raw chicken wouldn’t work without significant adjustments to the recipe for the differing cooking times.
