      I added shrimp, mushrooms, red pepper for color and basil. It was fantastic and even better the next day. I served it over tortellini but think it wound be better over the spaghetti or fettuchini. I didn't add any salt because of the parmesan and the chicken broth. It really didn't need any at the table either! Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe.

      This sauce is so quick to make, it was ready before I had the pasta boiled! I used a whole box of pasta, which was a mistake because the sauce was a little lost (the box was 300g), so I'll know for next time to only use about half. I made it without the parmesan and really liked the fresh flavours together. I served parmesan on the side for those that wanted it. Very nutritious sauce, I think you could use it many ways, and it might be nice to include some fresh herbs in it as well. Made for ZWT7, thanks Babzy

      I can't decide if this is best as a sauce or a thick soup. Either way, it's very tasty and easy to make. Great that it's dairy free too so it's pretty healthy and low-fat.
