You won’t believe how easy this recipe is with just 6 ingredients, plus it only takes about 20 minutes to prepare and doesn’t dirty up a bunch of pans and pots. Garlic, butter, parmesan, and pasta – doesn’t get better than this right?!

  1. Can you please suggest to me what I could use in place of the heavy cream in the recipe? Could I put chicken and a vegetable in it as well to make it a complete meal?
