This was fantastic and simple. I made it exactly as stated as there were no other reviews to build on and I'm very glad it worked out that way. I served this over a bed of egg noodles with fresh spinach. Read More

This would be a great base for a chowder but isn't good on pasta! I would also remove the basil. Read More

Very tasty. Used butter instead of olive oil and added 1 tsp minced garlic. Did not add the basil as I'm not a basil fan. Served over spaghetti noodles. Read More

I was in a time crunch when I made this so I couldn't simmer it for a half hour but I added a little flour to thicken it up. I really liked the flavor and served it over egg noodles. Read More

I made this exactly as printed and used fresh basil and parsley from my garden. We used it as a baked potato topping and the two of us ate all four servings at one meal. I am now making it to serve at a wedding shower on a baked potato bar. Delish! Read More
