    Excellent side for tonight's baked chicken breasts with a light fruit salad on the side. Lots of flavor to enjoy and quite simple to make up. This should please the whole family. :D

    Simple is often the best. I used egg noodles, because those are favorite right now, and the fresh herbs I used were pineapple sage, basil, parsley, and dill. It was quite wonderful. I used the same herbs in the green salad. A great sidedish with roasted pork loin.

    What a great, quick and easy side dish! I used angel hair pasta and light butter, and had to used dried thyme. Really loved the aroma of the fresh herbs and the wonderful fresh taste. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    This was awesome!! I made it last night and absolutely loved it. My 15 y/o was nervous about the green from the herbs, but he loved it too. It passed the teen boy taste test.

    mmmmm. I make pasta with just butter, salt, and pepper often. This recipe is similar, but with added fresh herbs. Your recipe adds elegance, aroma, and more flavor to a very simple dish making this a nice company worthy dish for those on a budget.
