    Very Good! I tried this recipe and it came out really good. I would like to recommend adding 3 cans/14 oz. each, of chicken broth/stock instead of just plain water and using 4 oz. of raw spaghetti (break it from the center, so it's not too long), as it works out perfectly (instead of handful). I will be definitely making this dish again very soon. Thank you.
