I thought this was good (even though we did not use any parmesan). However, it was a little oily for DH--I'm trying to figure out how to make an herb pasta that doesn't seem so oily. I cooked chunks of chicken at the end and I think that helped a little (with the oil).

This was fabulous. I made it for some dinner guests so I doubled the recipe and it was a hit! Everyone had at least two helpings. I also used a little less olive oil and added chicken. The leftovers were great too!

I made this for dinner tonight for my family. I did not add olive oil so i doubled the butter and garlic cloves. It tasted great. Along with the pasta, I had made garlic bread and chicken. Next time I will try it with the olive oil. I thought that along with this pasta, you can add shrimp to it-maybe next time I will try that as well. The dish was really quick and easy to make. My family and I loved it.
