I combined several family recipes to create this dish, which I like to serve when we have company. If my husband had his way, I’d make it every night. —Gail Cawsey, Geneseo, Illinois

"Made a double batch of this for dinner last night and eating leftovers for lunch right now! Its delicious and fast to make.

As for those bemoaning the lack of nutritional information, I agree that its nice to have that. However, we don't always get that with everything we eat. This dish has butter, pasta and cream. Its not going to be low in calories, so consider it a splurge."

"I made this tonight and it was very good, definitely a keeper. The only thing I changed, was I added two diced cloves of garlic, I will definitely be making it again."

"This was a delicious and fast weeknight meal. Made it exactly as written other then using half and half in place of the heavy cream and absolutely loved it. I will be making again and again. Simple yet elegant for company also. Definitely worth making:)"

"This sounds delicious but I never try recipes that don't give the nutritional values. We list it for some, why don't we do it for all recipes?"
