This is a wonderful pasta dish with a creamy rich sauce. You can add additional veggies (broccoli, mushrooms, snow peas) if you wish , but it's great on it's own. It can be a side dish, or a vegetarian meal, with a salad and good crusty bread.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a heavy saucepan, melt butter. Add garlic, basil and parsley and cook one minute.
  2. Blend in cream cheese, parmesan cheese, olive oil and pepper.
  3. Stir in boiling water.
  4. Blend well and simmer carefully for approximately 5 minutes. The sauce tends to separate, so keep stirring.
  5. Serve over your favorite pasta, I prefer vermecelli or fettucini.
