Pesto Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
Was kinda disappointed with this, I specifically picked this recipe because it looked like it was a cream sauce with a little basil/pesto twist. In the picture its mainly cream. I made it according to the recipe except i stopped after stirring in the pest and just put that right over pasta, instead of adding shrimp mushrooms and tomatoes. It came out like a green pesto soup. The consistency wasn't bad but it definitely was a pesto sauce. My boyfriend enjoyed it, but i chose this one so that me and his dad-who aren't HUGE pesto people-would like it too. I'm thinking about trying this again, but just adding 1/4 a cup basil pesto, or maybe even just chopped basil leaves and just add enough to give flavor but not be over powering the cream. If anyone who has made this and has had better luck, I'd love your advice. This dish sounds and looks yummy, it just didn't when I made it.

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Was good! my boyfriend and his dad loved it. I used granulated garlic, and minced onions simply because that was all i had on hand.

Emily's Manicotti

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I made it for my boyfriend and his dad, we all loved the flavor, but the noodles didn't come out good, at all. They were hard and chewy. I would love to make again, but don't know if I should try pre-cooking the noodles a bit, or adding more sauce, or even both.
