"Excellent side dish."

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."
