This was easy to prepare and very tasty.
I made this for myself when my husband was working out of town. Very easy and tasty! Loved it and will make it again......maybe when the hubby is around, lol! Might keep it just for me!!
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.
