    This is the easiest recipe and it was super good!!! I made my own heavy cream with whole milk and butter, used rotini pasta, and light salt and pepper while cooking. It came out delicious!!!

    Delicious! I did end up adding more heavy cream probably about half a cup. Everyone liked it! Definitely a favorite in my book, I baked chicken breast and served it on top. Quick and easy highly recommend.

    Family of 6 and everyone loves it. Especially my wife. I add about 1 1/2lbs of grilled chicken, 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, and fresh parmesan cheese and it just disappears!
