      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!
