LOVED this. Made it for the first time tonight...no changes except I forgot the garlic at the store so used garlic powder instead. Doubled everything. I was surprised...it was GREAT! I threw in a splash of lemon in my bowl too. :) So good! I also used frozen broccoli. Biggest critic...my husband...who hates anything pasta LOVED it too!!!!
We really liked this recipe and that's saying a lot considering my husband doesn't normally like pasta dishes. I left the carrots out since my husband doesn't like them.
Woops I meant to say I used parsley in place of the basil.
This was delicious. I made just a few changes because I did not have all the ingredients. I used thin slices of lean pork in place of the chicken and I used parsley in place of the chives. Everything else stood the same and my family loved it. Even my finicky 7 year old. Will definitely make this dish again. Maybe with a penne in place of angel hair pasta though.
This was a nice and refreshing meal for Springtime.
