    Mikekey's Note:

    This is not for the diet conscious! This is a great side for chicken or shrimp, and served with steamed broccoli. Sub chicken broth for the wine and bouillon, ir desired.

      Cant go wrong with this recipe, excellent, we loved it, could have this every night! I used linguini as per my husbands preference, but confess that I think a short pasta, penne or similar, would be a better choice. You could add shrimp or bacon or ... lots of stuff -- but it was great as was! Thank you, made for I Recommend tag game.

      Love this recipe! I had family over and served this...everyone LOVED it! I used Bowtie pasta and added shrimp at the end. We all like our food spicy, so I added some cayenne pepper, just to heat it up a little! Served with a salad and bread, perfect, quick and easy meal! And leftovers taste just as good!!! *takes a bite*

      Quick and easy, and quite tasty! I thought the smoked paprika was a nice addition to the sauce. I used mini bow tie pasta, and added shrimp. Tagged for Best of 2013 on 01/23, due 02/06/14.
