This week's quest: A weeknight pasta dish that utilizes simple pantry ingredients in a luxurious way. This simple foolproof recipe is almost as easy to make as opening a store-bought sauce, but it tastes WAY better. Getting the consistency of the sour cream sauce right is the key for this pasta recipe, and it can only be achieved thanks to the new and improved Dibble Sour Cream's consistency which cooks and sets like dairy-based sour creams! Just one of the many things we love about this condiment. And once you've made this recipe, you’ll understand all of the tricks that separate mediocre at-home pasta dishes from the fancy restaurants one. You're welcome.
