      Loved it as a good jumping off point but made some changes.<br/><br/>I cooked one pound of large shrimp in light butter and garlic. Added the basil pesto, a can of Italian style diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup of Parmesan and 1/2 cup of Romano cheese, a few shakes of Italian seasoning, a few dashes of Frank's red hot and used FF Half n half instead of the heavy cream. I cooked all of this together and simmer until thicken and added to the cooked penne. My husband quite nearly licked the plate clean. Will definitely be making this again. Will try with chicken next time.

      This was tasty but a bit bland for my tastes. BF & son enjoyed though. Thanks for sharing!

      This was good. per my usual, instead of heavy cream I substituted fat-free half-and-half to save some calories and fat. I LOVED it. Thanks for sharing!

      Deliciously simple! The only thing I changed, was to add some shrimp. :)

      So good! I made mine lower fat too! I wasn't sure if it would work, but I used low fat milk instead of heavy cream. I'm sure it didn't turn out as rich and creamy, but the sauce still came together nicely. I really like that you just dump everything into the same pot and a few minutes later you have pasta with pesto sauce. Great recipe!
