    So good. Followed the recipe but added more cream based on the reviews. Also added some cooked broccoli for some crunch.

    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.
