    Gosh, this sounds delicious, I can almost smell how flavourful it is. The fact that it’s done in about 30 mins means it’s my kind of dish 🙂

  2. This sounds like a great dish!! I love lemon with my chicken for some reason just brings the flavour out more, yummm!!

    Honestly this whole thing was confusing an took wayyyyy longer then 30 minutes. I would recommend the recipe but the way everything was done, to me was soooo not worth it sadly. It at least tastes pretty good

  4. Do you cook the pasta in the milk, garlic etc pan? Or do you cook it in boiling water and then add it to that? Sorry I’m confused. 😬 Thanks

    Al my sauce basically disappeared? Not sure how it happened. Was it because I cooked it at a high temperature? Other than that, it still tasted really good!
