    My family loves this and I do too because it's quick and easy. If I don't have fresh tomatoes I add a can of stewed or Italian tomatoes.

    I made this for dinner last night, it was really good :o) I don't care for tomatoes so added broccoli instead. I also added a little lemon juice and white wine.

    This is one of my favorite recipes. I love to make it in the summer when I have a ton of basil from the garden. I have a large family so I double it. Everyone raves about it. It's quick, easy and delicious. Taste like something you would get at a restaurant.

    This was scrumptious! Added more tomato and basil and more cream to make it creamier. But the flavor was excellent. Restaurant quality dish.

    This dish was awesome!! I made it for a weeknight dish, and it was a hit with adults and kids. It would be pretty enough to serve for guests.
