    BEWARE!!! The calorie content is WRONG! Its only for the sauce! Once i added the pasta and chicken in to my calorie counter app, it took the cals to over 800! Notice the pasta isn't listed in the ingre. Just in the directions? Otherwise it was good, just no low in cals like you're lead to believe. - 4/9/11

    I can tell that I'll llike this from the recipe ingredients.
    Put fresh basil leaves together,roll up into a log and slice thinly to make ribbons,called a chefanade.Always add fresh herbs at the end of the cooking,dry herbs in the beggining.I also like a little cayenne pepper in the sauce..Chef Jim

    If you click on "View full nutritional breakdown" above, it does show that 180 calories are alloted for the pasta (2 oz.) and 50 calories are alloted to the chicken (2 oz.) Whether that would be enough to be satisfying is debatable, but the calorie count does include the pasta and the chicken. - 4/19/12

    The recipe doesn't specify if the basil is DRIED or FRESH. This makes a huge difference in the flavor! I'm guessing from the quantity that it should be fresh basil. - 7/14/08
