I got this recipe from my ex-husbands cousin Paula. I always liked her the most :) This is a really yummy dish. The ingredients may sound a little different but they blend so great.

This was absolutely delicious Queenie...we enjoyed this so much. The sauce was light, creamy and velvety, infused with all those wonderful fresh herbs. I like the blend of nutmeg and cayenne, a nice bite. The chicken and angel hair pasta finished the dish perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing a new family favorite...we will be having this again often.

I absolutely loved this recipe!! I have a herb garden on my apt. deck and it was a great way to utilize all my fragrant herbs. I loved it. The boyfriend loved it and even his 8 year old daughter thought it was good!! I'll be making this again.

Excellant. I used jarred basil but the other ingredients were fresh. I admit I had my doubts about adding the nutmeg but it turned out great. A bit on the rich side and YUMMY.
