Used Land O Lakes real butter, but used sour cream and milk in place of half and half. Left out the tarragon and used curly noodles instead of vermicelli. The family loved it.

We made this recipe for the first time tonight! My kids, who rarely eat anything new, loved it! I added mushrooms in with the veggies and it turned out great!

OM NOM NOM! Very good recipe! Tastes similar to chicken scampi.

I make this recipe all the time in my family. We aren't big pepper fans, so I axe them and stir in steamed broccoli at the end ~ right before the pasta. I use whole wheat wide twisted noodles and cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Doing this really makes the sauce "stick". Definitely a winner all around!

Great recipe! I changed a few items. I used LOL fat free half and half, real butter, dried tarragon and bow tie pasta.

I LOVE THIS RECIPE!! I do change a few things though: I just use dried tarragon in a jar ( but for me this is a must in some form w/o tarragon its not the same great taste..but its still good) I also use Angel Hair pasta. Holds better and you get more flavor!!

This is one of my family's favorites and it's special enough to serve for guests. The only thing I change is the Buttery Spread, I only use real butter.

I LOVE this recipe. I actually make it without the tarragon finicky eatersand it still tastes great!

Great recipe with a wonderful flavor! It is kind of a light alfredo. The whole family enjoyed this one and it is simple enough to make for an everyday meal. I think it would impress for company as well.

This was very easy to make and taste was very good. Did not use tarragon b/c my grocer was out. Plan to use it next time.
