MY REVIEW

"Yummy and versatile recipe--I added cubed pre-cooked ham and made it a main dish. Good with Green Salad with Herb Vinaigrette (another TOH recipe)."

"Instead of bow tie pasta, I used a garlic chicken tortelloni and it was awesome!!!"

MY REVIEW

"This was easy to make. I made some alterations: I used fat free half and half (to reduce fat), added some pecorino Romano cheese at the end (about 1/4 cup maybe?), and already cooked chicken breast strips. I also reduced the amount of pasta (to 3/4 lb of penne) and increased both the half and half and chicken broth. It made a thin but tasty sauce. My family would rather have a thinner sauce instead of not enough. As my 11 yr old son would say, this ones a keeper!"
