This is an easy dish I make when I am just cooking for myself. Creamy basil, garlic and butter sauce over angel hair pasta.
This dish was AWESOME! It seriously tasted like something from Olive Garden. The only thing I did different was that I added a small handful of mozzerella cheese to the sauce and I didnt use any of the pasta water. I also sauted some shrimp in butter and a clove of minced garlic and it turned out perfect! I will be making this one again and again! - 26 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
WOW! My family really loved this. I needed this for 6 and it converted very easily. I wanted to add chicken so I just cut chicken breasts into bite size pieces seasoned with salt and peper and cooked them with the onions and garlic. I also had some really fresh tomatoes so I chopped them into small pieces and added them to the top of the dish after it was on the plate. This made a wonderful addition. I will be making this a lot. - 16 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Fantastic!!! After reading everyone's issues with thickness, and especially since I am a carbonara expert (Thanks Dad!), the best way to get desired thickness is a low flame for 20-30 minutes, constant stirring, and if necessary, 2 tbsp of cornstarch and 2 tbsp of cold water mixture. Other than the usual additions of shrimp, chicken or veggies, I wouldn't have changed a thing!! - 12 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
