Inez... this was wonderful! The only change I made was reducing the amount of mushrooms, because I only had a few on hand. I served this with a salad and warm breadsticks. My husband even gave it a 5 star rating too, and he isn't very fond of chicken... so that is saying alot!!! I will definitely be making this dish again!
My husband wanted to know who I was and what had I done with his wife after I made this. I have been known to make some catastrophic disasters in the kitchen. This recipe helped me reclaim a little of my confidence. Fabulous. Rich, creamy sauce that was very easy to make. The basil rules. Very elegant and delicious. Thanks Inez. I will be checking out more of your recipes for sure.
my family loves this dish! i reduce the fat by using milk instead of the whipping cream. it is a bit watery at first, but after sitting with the pasta for a couple minutes, it is soaked up nicely. i also add a lot more basil (personal preference!) next time, i will try adding some veggies. this is a very yummy meal - thanks a bunch, MizzNezz!

After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
