    Bill Hilbrich's Note:

    Served with a side dish of vegetables, this will make a filling meal for one. Cooked Shrimp could also be used. The quantities to make the sauce are just enough to coat the pasta without leaving it in a puddle.

      Wow, you really ought to try this. It's creamy and sooo incredibly satisfying. I sauteed diced chicken breast in olive oil and lots of garlic, then added the pesto and Greek yogurt rather than sour cream. Then I added cooked penne to the saute pan along with the parmesan. Twenty-five stars for the resulting sauce.

      This was amazing! I doubled everything except for the chicken in the recipe so I could save some for later. I used Simply Organic Pesto mix and made that up ahead of time. I also diced up the chicken and sauteed it in olive garlic and minced garlic as suggested by another review. I used fettuccine because it was what I had on hand, and I also added some steamed peas and diced roma tomatoes to the sauce. It was delicious! I will definitely be making this again. So easy and quick!
