I love pasta and I love it even more when it is so simple to make. I really enjoyed this dish but next time I will use a different pasta than fettuccine. It's not one of my favorites. When making this make sure you add the fresh basil because that is what really makes this dish. My main change to this recipe was to replace the heavy cream with sour cream. I always use low fat. I love this substitution for heavy cream in pasta.
