It really couldn't be easier
When I was younger I didn't really cook all that much during the week, and when I did cook on workdays it was always something super quick and easy. I was always looking for really quick recipes I could just throw together and pretend I actually cooked that night. One of my first, what I considered "fancier", assembled dishes was this pasta with basil cream sauce. One of my good friends whose dad was a French chef taught this one to me. She said it was her favorite because of how incredibly easy and tasty it was.
