Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Add chicken to this pasta dish. After cooking the garlic, add about 1/2 pound cubed boneless skinless chicken; cook until no longer pink in center.
  • tip 2
    A crusty French baguette is a nice addition and adds a different texture to this meal.
