    Really nice and simple- tasted great!  -  22 Sep 2011


    This was great, but I did change some things to suit my own personal preferences. I, like everyone else, only used a small amount of oil. I added about 1 cup of onions and one teaspoon of minced garlic to the oil and butter and cooked over medium heat in a saucepan. Then I added the basil, pepper, and chicken broth to the saucepan. Meanwhile I cooked and drained some angel hair pasta. I decided I wanted the sauce to be creamy, so in a smaller saucepan I made a white sauce with 1 cup of milk, 2 tbsp. of butter, and 2 tbsp. of Wondra flour. Once that had thickened I slowly stirred it into the onion mixture. I let it simmer together for a few minutes, added more salt and pepper, then began to spoon the pasta into the sauce until it was just the right consistency. It was so yummy! It was super creamy and my husband loved it. Thanks for the great recipe, Jackie!  -  12 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
