      Hubby and I both loved this...I made it for lunch using some leftover chopped chicken for protein...I used Radiatori instead of Rigatoni...only because that's what I had...neither one of us thought that the red wine vinegar was too much...I did throw in some red pepper flakes only because we love the extra heat it adds...we loved the fresh basil and the touch of sour cream...hubby said he would love to see this recipe again...that makes it a keeper...thanks for posting it =)

      It's a great easy dish. But I didn't like the addition of the red wine vinegar. The fresh basil in this is really great. Thanks Loof :) Made for 123 hit wonders
