Reviews for Pasta with Cream Sauce
"Delicious! I added carrots and cheese tortellini instead of bow tie pasta. Thank you, Amy, for sharing this recipe."
"My family likes lots of sauce with their pasta so we reduced the noodles to 8 oz for this amount of sauce. I used dry seasonings - one tsp each. I thickened it a bit with cornstarch. I kept the noodles and the sauce separate and we ladled it on instead of tossing it in. We also topped it with French fried onions. Yummy!"
"Great recipe! Family enjoyed it. I added peas and ham to make it a meal! Will make again!"
"Yummy and versatile recipe--I added cubed pre-cooked ham and made it a main dish. Good with Green salad with Herb Vinaigrette (another TOH recipe)."
"This was easy to make. I made some alterations: I used fat free half and half (to reduce fat), added some pecorino Romano cheese at the end (about 1/4 cup maybe?), and already cooked chicken breast strips. I also reduced the amount of pasta (to 3/4 lb of penne) and increased both the half and half and chicken broth. It made a thin but tasty sauce. My family would rather have a thinner sauce instead of not enough. As my 11 yr old son would say, this ones a keeper!"
"Yum! Enough said."
"Wonderful! I added mushrooms and peppers to the dish, and it tasted great!"
"Simple and easy side dish."
"Followed recipe and it was easy enough to make it just didn't have much flavor."
