Chicken & Basil Pasta with Cream Sauce

by itsalldelicious

This is such a great recipe because it’s sooooo easy!! I promise. Takes 15-20 minutes tops! Chop up half of a medium onion and 2 cloves of garlic. Go ahead and get the pasta water boiling.

Cook the onion and garlic in 2 tbsp olive oil & 2 tbsp butter for 4-5 minutes.

I add chicken to this recipe but you can use any kind of meat….or none at all! Shrimp & scallops would both be wonderful.
