An envelope of vegetable soup mix lends flavor to the simple cream sauce that coats this rich pasta entree. I like to garnish it with additional mozzarella cheese and parsley.

"This is a family favorite in my house. It tastes as good as you would get in a restaurant and so easy to make. I did not make any changes to this recipe. Definitely a keeper!"

"This had a very odd flavor, I think it was from the soup mix. I would not make again."
