This turned out great...I added some artichoke hearts as well which went nicely. Very pretty combination of colors - thank you!
This came from Family Circle Magazine. Delicious, easy and fast prep. Made for a dinner party. Looked beautiful and made me look like a star. I love when a recipe does that for me. thanks.
Very nice pasta dish. My prep and final product probably only deserved 3-4 stars....but that was due to my own inexperience with this one skillet/restaurant style of cooking. It was still enjoyed by all. And I think next time, I will do a better job with it. For me, it would have helped to have all my ingredients pre-measured and within reach. I just felt like there was so much to DO with this preparation in a very short period of time...constantly felt as though I were running behind or had forgotten a step or needed to get some other step going....So for those slow, southern, home cooking style chefs out there, this may be a tedious recipe...but for those who shine with this style of cooking, I think you will love it. I plan to try it again as I'd like to master the technique. Only change I may make is to splurge and use a little butter in place of some of the chicken broth or alternatively, a little cream in the sauce just to richen it up a bit. Thanks for the post!
