    I didn't have heavy cream, so I used half and half instead and still delicious.

    This was absolutely delicious and I’m pretty picky with my pastas. The only things I added were cayenne pepper to kick it up garlic and onion powder as well. I will be making this all the time

    This dish was so delicious! I made it as directed but I did marinate the chicken in some red wine vinegar and season it with some roasted garlic and herb seasoning prior to cooking! I also added some sautéed onions and green and red peppers to the sauce. It turned out amazing!
