Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made it tonight. Made it tonight. It was delicious! My family loved it. Will make it again. It's quick and easy to make. It took me 23 minutes after the bow tie pasta was ready. I've told other family members about it. They will try it also. Thanks.

After reading the other reviews I thought this would be a safe try but boy was I wrong; an expensive experiment that tasted awaful. The only redeeming quality was that it was easy to fix. I ended up running it down the disposal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another delicious recipe from Kraft. Another delicious recipe from Kraft. I love the cooking cream with pesto, the only thing I did differently was to use penne instead of Bow tie pasta and Parmesan instead of mozzarella.
