    Ok girl,
    I'll try this one just for you, however, I'm really not a fan of pasta all that much. Still it sounds pretty good, and I'm sure that if you posted it I'll like it just the same. Thanks.

    I LOVE pasta!!! Esp with fresh seafood and cream sauces. It's been a long time since I have eaten any though. Time to diet down a bit.

    I actually posted this for someone, I think it was Palme, looking for some pasta ideas. So don't force yourself Tobey, I will find something else for you

    Usually I don't like pasta, but when pasta has chicken in it, it sounds like a meal!
