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

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

"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."

"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."
