Reviews for Italian Pasta and Peas
"I also couldn't find the Lipton as specified in the editor's note. Knorr has fettucine in the Parmesan/Romano sauce. This reminds me of tuna casserole minus the tuna."
"Excellent side dish."
"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!"
