Top Review by Leggy Peggy

This dish is worthy of company. We made it pretty much as written -- using a little less garlic to accommodate a non-garlic-loving guest. Australia doesn't sell Italian salad dressing powder, so I used two tablespoons of Italian salad dressing. You didn't say how much pasta. We used 500 grams (1 pound).
