"This is a very good substitute for your regular potatoes or rice when you serve any kind of meat. Your pasta can be fresh or dry; so can your herbs. Let me tell you that fresh or homemade pasta with fresh herbs will taste out of this world." — Lise Peter

While this is neither an extraordinary recipe nor cooking method it is still nevertheless a fresh, flavorful, and pretty-on-the-plate side dish pasta. There is no science here...use whatever herbs you have on hand or whatever your preference is. No need to measure, just chop and add fresh herbs (or throw in a pinch or two of dried) to your liking. It was a nice change from the garlic and olive oil pasta I traditionally serve. I omitted the olives and served with Jerusalem Chicken II, also from this site. Simple and delicious.
one thing that is great to do is to boil garlic cloes in the water with the pasta, this adds flavor to the pasta itself
This has a great flavor! I wanted a whole meal rather than a side dish, so I cooked thin strips of chicken, then added some thinly sliced carrots and celery, diced red pepper, snow peas and mushrooms. Versatile recipe. It smells wonderful while cooking! I omitted the olives since I didn't have and don't really care for them anyway. I plan to cut my butter to about 2 Tbsp and add 1/4 c broth to lesson the fat next time.
We loved this and I will make this again! I only used 1/4 cup butter (olive oil would be a tasty and healthy alternative). I used all dried herbs because that's what I had. I also couldn't resist adding some parmesan cheese. The olives were a nice touch!
I printed this recipe out last May and just made it this weekend. This is right up my Husband's alley, he loved it! I will sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top next time I make it. Great alternative to rice and potatoes!
Loved it!! Didn't have savory and. We added garlic salt and parmesan. It was wonderful!
Made this tonight along with te Pasta & Herbs from this site. They both get 5 stars and each one complimented the other. MmmmGood..
My family loved this pasta. Even my picky eater. (my husband) I only had dried seasonings, but will use fresh next time to make it even better. Sliced grilled chicken over it, made an easy easy delicious meal.
