Reviews forCreamy Bow Tie Pasta
"Great side dish easy and tasty perfect for two"
"it was nice but I don't know if I would have doubled the sauce as suggested..."
"I've been searching for a good pasta side dish to have in my recipe box. I made this recipe last week and it was surprisingly delicious. As I started getting the ingredients together I realized it wasn't going to make much so I doubled the recipe. I followed the recipe exactly. I may have added a little ground pepper which I believe someone mentioned in their review. It was simple to make and when it was done I thought the parmesan cheese was going to be to powerful and make it taste bad. I was surprised to find it actually tasted really great. Sometimes internet recipes are hit or miss but this was a hit. I really liked the kick the red pepper flakes gave. I will definitely make this again and recommend it to others."
"my family really liked this. will definat ly make again"
"Needs a bit more flavor. I will make some additions like garlic powder and maybe some coarse ground pepper. I enjoy the kick the red pepper flakes give it though."
"Great side for many meals - nice 'n creamy, great flavors."
"I have made this several times. It's a great side dish and makes just enough for 2."
"I made this according to the recipe I just doubled it to make enough for my family and it was bland. It did not have enough of a flavor. I added some garlic salt and pepper it was better."
"I made this according to the recipe minus the red pepper flakes, then added chicken to make it a main dish. It was very easy and really good, and not super rich like a lot of Alfredo recipes are. I made it for a large group so I used the whole 12 oz box of pasta and ended up multiplying the sauce ingredients by six and it was the perfect amount of sauce, not too soupy but not dry. I will definitely make this again."
