Kids love pasta, especially when it is shaped like fun "butterflies." The lemon and basil pairs with Parmesan cheese to transform plain pasta into something totally different and kid-approved! —Lauren Reiff, East Earl, Pennsylvania

"Very good side dish. Served it along side of chicken and it was just the right amount of seasonings. My future daughter-in-law even asked to take the leftovers home. Will be making this again."
