1/3 Photos of Chicken Scampi With Pasta
A popular restaurant-style dish that can be prepared at home with great results, I have made this many times, it is *very* good! --- the success of this dish will depend on the quality of Parmesan cheese that you use so use the best! The garlic amount may be adjusted to taste, and use whipping cream only for this!
