    This was really good, I didnt put milk but chive vineagar and added cilantro with the basil. The flavors of the basil and cilantro with the sundried tomatoes and olive oil really made this dish tasty. - 8/7/12

    Wonderful, I made a couple changes, used more basil, used canned milk and water, and multi grain bow tie pasta. Reminds me of a dish I used to get at a resturant where you build your own bowl but was sinnfully fatening - 4/16/10

    A variation - I didn't have enough sun dried tomatoes, so I added some regular tomato pasta sauce. I used oil to saute the garlic & added chopped onions. A great use for leftover chicken. My husband, who doesn't like creamy sauces, loved this one. Creamy but without the calories. Great. - 5/26/09
