Absolutelu delicious. In the interest of reducing the fat, I subbeda little low-fat yogurt and the water from reconstituting the dried tomatoes for the cream--still very rich and delicious tasting. Thanks, Beck!

Well, I only really needed to read the ingredients to know we'd like this! Made for a lovely, quick lunch! I cut the recipe in half, used 280 g of chopped chicken breast, and got two *very* generous servings. Next time I think I'll use a little less pasta, I think 160 g instead of 200 g would be perfect for two servings. Thanks for sharing the recipe Beck, it will definitely get made again!
