MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 24, 2013

Sauce too thick, but would make again with more milk. Also, I think this would be really good with fresh basil

Did not enjoy!

MY REVIEW

Very easy and tasty. I made it with lowfat cream cheese and 1% milk.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 1, 2010

I think omitting the cornstarch would make the sauce a little less think and better with the pasta. It was good just a little too thick. Everyone liked it but thought it wasn't saucy enough.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 29, 2009

I thought the sauce was too thick and lacked flavor, even with the ham. Perhaps more spices and a bit more milk would help this recipe, but I will not make it again.
