    Starrynews's Note:

    Two types of tomatoes, herbs, pasta, and chicken in a delicious, creamy sauce. It works nicely with low fat milk and cheeses (which are what we usually use). Fresh basil is good in here too, instead of dried. This dish was inspired by combining several different recipes. (Note - we don't like a lot of extra sauce- just enough to cover the pasta - so if you like a lot of sauce, you may want to make a little more).

      Loved the flavours in this dish! I used fresh tomatoes diced, and would definitely recommend doing it this way. Next time I would make more sauce because the flavour was so wonderful I wanted more of it! Thanks for a lovely recipe!

      We really enjoyed this pasta dish! It was nice and creamy, mild tasting and beautiful! Mine didn't have enough sauce for some reason, so I tossed in some more tomatoes towards the end. Thank you!! Made for the Culinary Quest for the International Agents of Quest - Italy. Ciao!

      This is seriously yummy. I do agree, make more sauce! I used fresh basil, and I wish I would have used more sun dried tomatoes, but it really is delicious.
