Very bland unless you add 4 TBS butter, 4 TBS wine, 4 cloves garlic, 1-2 TBS lemon juice and do NOT put the cheese in as you are making the sauce (I added about 4 TBS cheese). Toss it with the pasta after or you will have a congealed messy blob. I prefer basil to parsley but both are good. - 08 Oct 2008
Altered ingredient amounts.
I am giving this sauce four stars because it gave me the basics that I needed to create a truly gourmet sauce. Like previous reviewers I had to add much more quantity than called for. I used extra butter, 175ml dry white wine, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, 4 cloves of garlic. I also add 1 tsp. each of dried basil and oregano. I also use mushrooms too. If you like it spicy try using a sprinkle of crushed chilli flakes. This makes a decadent sauce that my brother says he dreams about. - 08 Oct 2008
