      Terrific!!! We can't wait to have this dish again. My changes were: only 1/2 lb pasta, 12oz of chicken breast, and 1/4 cup or so of butter. I wasn't sure on the balsamic vinegar with the 1/2 cup and 2T measurements, so I reduced the 1/2 cup and then put the 2T on the dish in the final mixing. The fresh rosemary cooking with the asparagus left the most awesome flavor. We will make this a lot during peak asparagus season. My 8 year olds both gave this a 5 star rating. Thanks for sharing Barb!

      Wow, surprisingly good! My expectations weren't real high but I thought I'd try something new. Glad I did. Not bitter at all. Will make again. THANKS Barb!

      I made this using bow ties inseead of penne - it was wonderful. Also I added fresh tomatoes (skinned and chopped) and basil. The balsamic reduction was a little tricky. Maybe i overcooked it. But, after I removed it from the stove and added the brown sugar, it got quite hard. So, I added a little warm water and heated it a bit sirring constantly and it was just fine. I really enjoyed this easy to make dish. Thanks for posting.
