    I liked it and it was easy enough to make. I couldn't find cooking crème so I used 8 oz crème cheese, 1/2 chicken broth and about 1/2 tsp dried garlic. My family wasn't crazy about it, however.

    I used this recipe as more of an idea maker. I used plain cream cheese and chicken broth to make the sauce. I added my own herbs to it so it would be more flavorable for us. I used orange peppers and added dried tomatoes,garlic and onions along with fresh spinach. I also used bowtie pasta. What is great about most of these recipes is that you can change and substitute things around and it still works with some tweaking on your part.

    I'm less than thrilled about this recipe. I was really hoping this was a keeper, but I didn't care for it at all. I followed the directions as stated, but it tasted bland to me. I won't be making this again.
