Seriously delicious! I had mushrooms that needed to be used up and added them with the butter and olive oil. Farfalle pasta worked well as an alternative to Angel Hair. Would not change a thing!
very good I used rigatoni instead of angel hair.
Absolutely delicious. Easy to make! We served this with some fresh fruit on the side & it was a perfect dinner.
This is awesome! I've made other similar dishes, but none hold a candle to this one. Spot on, Chef John, spot on! This will see a lot of action at the LTH house. No changes, other than using a couple more garlic cloves because, well, why not. THANK YOU, Chef John!
Very good! I halved the recipe, just to use it for a side dish, and added a little extra chicken broth at the end b/c it looked a bit dry. The flavors really get into the pasta and make a tasty dish. A nice, light, fresh tasting pasta. This was super simple to make too...I will be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. ;)
