SO good! I made this with leftover roasted chicken and angel hair because I think those noodles work better with thin sauces. I also put the garlic in at the beginning as soon as I started the butter melting so that it would be nice and soft, and I used fresh parsley. It was just amazing, and we'll have it again for sure!
