This was just OK for us. I followed the recipe as written other then I used light cream. I used italian seasoning instead of just basil. We thought it needed more flavor. We did add salt and pepper and liked it a bit more. Not sure what it as missing but it was missing something for us.
Great pasta dish, perfect for a last minute fix with no meat defrosted. Personally I would reduce the cream next time, though my daughter thought it was delicious as is. I didn't have any penne, just bow ties. Thanks for posting.
We enjoyed this quick and easy recipe. It's great if you're in a hurry. When you have a little more time, adding a half pound of Italian Sausage makes this an extra tasty dish. Thanks!
Made this recipe as given (well, except that I did use a very small amount of lemon pepper!), & it was an interesting & enjoyable change from the pasta dishes we usually have, what with this sauce ~ VERY, VERY NICE, & simple to make as well! We liked the simplicity of the seasoning, too! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]
YUMMMMM! This couldn't have been any easier, I don't think. My honey likes spicey pasta at least once a week, so I used tomatoes with jalapenos rather than garlic and onion.
