Very bland. Even my son who eats everything didn't finish.

Totally quick and easy recipe that tastes great! I used dried basil and topped our plates with shredded Parmesan cheese. I also used bow-tie pasta. My boyfriend and I ate it with toasted wheat bread and said we'd both love to eat it again. I think next time I'll try my plate with some capers sprinkled in!
