MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 11, 2011

This is a nice mild, tasty side dish.

In our area, they no longer carry the Lipton pasta suggested. It is now Knorr Italian pasta formally Lipton and called creamy garlic shells. I couldn't find any bow tie pasta. It is in a parmesan/romano sauce.

Really good and quick to make. Add ham or chicken for a quick main dish!
