I was really excited to find another use for sun-dried tomatoes in this recipe. I might not use all of the steps with the milk and cheese next time, but just use the sun-dried tomatoes in chicken broth idea. It was so good!! It would make a perfect light sauce without all of the extra-ness in this recipe. Not that the extra-ness is bad. It’s not. But I am trying to think of you healthy eaters out there. So, the verdict is, you can leave out some of the not-so-good-for-you stuff and still have a yummy Italian meal.
