MMMMMMMmmm was this ever good! We enjoyed it very much. We had with some baked pita wedges and my DH just about inhaled his plate! He gives it 5 stars and I do too. It's a winner all the way to the table! Thanks Paula!
Seriously delish! Double the stock & cream cheese. I am a big fan of lemony pasta things. Was tempted to use asparagus, which would have been fantastic! I followed the recipe and now I'm ready to play!
Light, flavorful, delicious. I expected it to be more creamy but found it to be so full of flavor that I didn't really miss it. Be careful not to burn the garlic at the beginning (I missed the cue of using medium high heat and scorched mine -- yuck. Threw it out and started over. Love the peas and carrots in it - nice balance. Garnished mine with a handful of parsley (I love parsley). Good find, thanks.
