Yum! This is so good, and addicting if you love pasta like I do. For herbs I only used fresh basil. It was such a great flavor enhancer for the pasta and cheese. I was so happy to have leftovers!

We loved this quick and easy to prepare pasta! We had it as a side with baked chicken. I opted to use lemon pepper and basil and it added so much flavor. Enjoyed very much by my family!

This was really good, and it's quite quick to prepare too. I used the parsley (as instructed in the recipe). For the extra herb, I used fresh basil from my herb garden, and I thought it was excellent in this recipe. I made the recipe as written without any adjustments, and I'll do so the next time I make it because it's quite good as written and needs no adjustments in ingredients. Thank you, KarenSTL.

This is so easy and so good! I love the idea of adding shrimp or chicken, but I served mine with brisket and we loved it. We will definitely do this son thought it was "great!"
