The kids really enjoyed this. I used evaporated milk instead of the cream and olive oil instead of butter to cut out some calories. I added peas to sneak in some veggies. I'll make this again for sure!

This was yummy and easy. For health reasons I had to change a few things. Olive oil, instead of butter and I used a low-fat cream. As a result, the sauce was probably thinner, but it was still really tasty. I also garnished the dish with chopped tomatoes, basil, and garlic. Pretty to the eyes and palate!

Hubby says can make again. Had a really nice taste. I used Kittencal's Perfect Pesto Sauce with it. Thanks for sharing.
