Laura's Unbelievable Chicken and Pasta
I followed the recipe exactly except, I substituted steamed broccoli for the spinach. I liked the idea of having some vegies in a pasta dish and no heavy cream. The problem I had was that the sauce didn't thicken up at all. The sauce was completely runny and sat at the bottom of the dish. It was also rather bland, so I added salt, pepper and plenty of parm cheese. I might try again and saute the chicken then add some flour before adding the broth and cream cheese.

Butternut Squash Soup
I've made this many times. The nice thing about this recipe is, the measurments don't have to be exact. One nice size squash equals about 4 cups. I use 3 cups of broth and only 4oz of cream cheese. I like to season mine with nutmeg, curry powder, white pepper and thyme. It took me a few times to figure out why mine was grainey. I have found that blending in a blender, in small batches rather than a food processer will make a smooth (not grainy) soup.

Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole
I was looking for a recipe to use some of the basil which I had grown, although; this recipe called for dried basil, I used fresh and lots of it since I like basil. I thought it turned out fantastic. Since I was cooking with wine and the recipe didn't call for any. I stirred all of the cheese in and forgot to reserve 1/2 to put on top and it was fine. I also added some rotisserie chicken to make it a one dish meal. Served it with a salad, some crusty buttered bread, and the rest of the wine. Mmmm, Thanks for a great recipe.
