Looking for something a little more exciting than boiled pasta to serve with a chicken entree, Greta Igl found inspiration and just-picked flavor in her herb garden. “I love using fresh herbs whenever possible, she says, “and I have plants tucked all around my yard in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.”

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 3, 2016

"I have tried this recipe twice now and both times it was less than mediocre. The first time I used wide egg noodles, but there was just WAY too much parmesan & spices. It tasted awful. I thought maybe it was because I used the wrong type of noodle. The second time I tried it (this evening), I used extra thin egg noodles. These are the SAME shape and size as angel hair pasta. And yet again, it was WAY too much dry ingredients. I wound up using only half of it (and it was still COATED). I had to add more olive oil to get it edible. Maybe because I used the dry ingredients instead of fresh? I did the conversion of fresh to dry (1 tbsp fresh = 1 tsp dry) so I don't see how that could be it. If someone knows what I'm doing wrong, please let me know."

"My family loves this, and it's so much easier than the creamy noodles recipe I had been using. My youngest never liked the creamy noodles (she doesn't like mac and cheese type dishes) but she likes the herbed angel hair pasta!"

"Simple and good side dish. Served it alongside grilled chicken for the kids and grilled Italian eggplant slices for the adults. Yum!"

"I didn't have the basil or parsley on hand, so I used about 1 tsp or so of pesto. I probably liked it better than if I had followed the recipe!"

"I've made this many times and it is always a hit - especially with the "Baked Mushroom Chicken" Recipe that it is photographed with."
