Basil and parsley, plus a generous dash of lemon, help perk up the flavors in this pretty and appealing side dish from Dorothy Smith of El Dorado, Arkansas. Starring both pasta and potatoes, it's a hearty choice to round out almost any menu.
Our Test Kitchen tossed tender tube pasta with fresh spinach, onion, blue cheese and chicken broth to create this aromatic entree. A sprinkling of toasted honey pecans tops it all with a touch of sweetness.
